Springfield Underground is a 3 1/2 million square foot underground development. It is a former limestone mine shut down in 2015, and now it’s all storage and warehouse space.

John Griesemer, president of the Erlen group, said during an emergency situation, all buildings go into immediate lockdown. Everyone was secure in their facilities at the time of the shooting.

He said the intruder drove around their security system and was basically breaking and entering.
