Officials say a police pursuit involving a Greyhound bus was initiated in southeast Wisconsin for a reported armed subject on the bus. Spike strips were used to stop the bus on southbound I-94 near Rosecrans Road.

The suspect, who has not been identified, claimed to have a gun and made threats to kill people Friday as the bus was en route to Chicago from Milwaukee, the Racine County Sheriff's office said.

Authorities said no injuries were reported. Those passengers were evacuated, and Greyhound is sending a release bus to transport them to Chicago.
