More details are emerging about an incident that took place yesterday in the Subtropolis business complex, in which multiple people were injured and one person has died. Authorities have released security footage of armed robbers who posed as maintenance workers in order to gain access to the complex.

Attached is a grainy photo of three individuals dressed in working clothes, only one positioned in such a way the camera clearly caught their face as they move through an maintenance hall. One is a feminine figure with long blonde hair, the other a bearded man with glasses whose face can't entirely be seen. But the third…

Identified among the assailants is former Ferryman Benjamin Ryans. Ryans is a veteran of the Second Civil War, provided extensive testimony at the Albany Trials, and was a former agent of the infamous Company in the years leading up to the Civil War. He and his companions are considered armed and dangerous, and authorities ask that any sightings be immediately reported.

Authorities report following gaining entry to the complex, Ryans and the other two suspects forced a security guard to provide access to a secured records depot located on-site, and exchanged fire with other members of security before fleeing.

Business has resumed in Subtropolis and surrounding facilities. KCPD is now working with federal officials to determine if the incident was an act of terrorism.
