An armed man was arrested Thursday night outside the Pennsylvania Convention Center holding a vote count after police received word of a conspiracy to attack the site, a new report said. .
The bust came after police uncovered that a group of people from Virginia drove to the convention center in a Hummer with plans of a possible attack, WPVI reported.
At around 10:50 pm, a man inside a Vietnamese restaurant across the center was arrested.
The police recovered a weapon and located a Hummer. It is not yet clear whether the man caught outside the center was involved in the alleged attack plot.
The election officials inside the convention center in the city center are actively arranging mail ballots on a battlefield state.
As of late Thursday night, President Trump led the state with a gap of 24,000 votes at 94%.
More ballots mailed in Pittsburgh̵7;s Allegheny County also need to be counted.
Trump’s campaign earlier on Thursday tried unsuccessfully to stop Philadelphia’s vote on allegations that his supporters were not allowed to oversee the tally of mailed votes. .
