RAVENNA, Ohio (WKBN) – The Ravenna VA Clinic closed Wednesday after a man fired a gun outside, according to a news release from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.

At approximately 8:15 a.m., a VA employee walking into work noticed a man kneeling on the ground. The clinic’s security officer went out to talk to the man and reported that the man fired one shot into the air.

The security officer ran inside the building and secured it, calling local authorities.

Ravenna and VA police were able to get the man to surrender to them. He was taken to a local hospital, and no injuries were reported.

“We are thankful that VA staff and local law enforcement acted swiftly and appropriately to ensure the safety of all involved today,” said Jill Dietrich Mellon, CEO of VA Northeast Ohio Healthcare System. “We would also like to applaud the swift actions of our VA employee who noticed the man in distress and alerted authorities, and the actions of our security guard to keep everyone safe. We all play a role in caring for those in crisis.”

Patients are now being contacted to reschedule their appointments as the clinic will remain closed for the rest of the day on Wednesday.

The clinic is located on the 6700 block of Chestnut Street. Ravenna High School is less than a mile away from the clinic.
