The security, according to the report, told the individuals to depart the area. A windshield was struck by a bullet from one of the individuals involved in the incident.

After being shot at, the security personnel, who helped stopped the individuals from accessing the facility, also fired back at the individuals. However, according to the authorities, there were no injuries in the incident.

The investigation is ongoing. At the time of this post, there have been no arrests in the case.

The authorities believe this incident was an isolated incident. They do not believe this may have been linked to “terrorist activity.”

Mercedes-Benz Superdome is hosting the College Football Playoff on Monday night. The top-ranked LSU Tigers will have home-field advantage as they will basically be playing an hour away from their campus.

The Tigers will face the third-ranked Clemson Tigers. These Tigers, though, have not been defeated in the last two seasons.

The two teams will do battle at 8 pm EST on ESPN.

If you were wondering, there are no College Football Playoff festivities planned for the Mercedes-Benz Superdome until Monday night.
