MINSK, Belarus (AP) — Police in Ukraine's capital say they apprehended a man who allegedly threatened to blow up a major bridge and shot down a police drone monitoring him.

Police said the man made the threat while standing on a major bridge in Kyiv.

They say that along with bringing down the drone, he fired several shots in the air during a police standoff.

It was unclear if the man possessed any explosives when he was detained on Wednesday afternoon or made specific demands.

Ukrainian media identified him as a soldier.

The standoff shut down vehicle and subway traffic on the bridge across the Dnipro River, disrupting travel.
