Police in Las Vegas have arrested a masked man at a mall, who appeared to have a fake gun.

On Thursday night, local media reported a massive police presence around the Boulevard Mall earlier Thursday night, following reports of an active shooting.

Metro Police Deputy Chief Chris Jones said no shots were fired and no injuries have been reported.

Jones said the department obtained a video of a person with a long gun Thursday and conducted several searches of the mall before
finding the suspect.

Authorities did not immediately release the man’s identity.
