Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was rushed off the stage by Secret Service at a campaign rally in Reno, Nevada on Saturday.
A man in a blue sweater was tackled before being escorted out by law enforcement before being held in a bathroom inside the venue.
The Secret Service released a statement saying that the commotion started when someone in the rally shouted "Gun," but said that no gun was found.
"Immediately in front of the stage, an unidentified individual shouted 'gun.' Secret Service agents and Reno Police Officers immediately apprehended the subject. Upon a thorough search of the subject and the surrounding area, no weapon was found," the statement said.
Trump returned to the stage, he thanked the Secret Service.
"We will never be stopped, never ever be stopped," said Trump when he arrived back on stage at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. "I want to thank the Secret Service; these guys are fantastic."
Heavily armed police and what appeared to be men wearing helmets leaped over barricades into the crowd.
Reporters were not close enough to see exactly what was happening, which went on for about six or seven minutes before the campaign ordered the journalists to leave the convention hall.
