RENO, Nevada- NBC says Donald Trump was rushed off stage by the Secret Service while delivering speech in Reno, Nevada, Saturday night after someone in the crowd yelled “gun” but no weapon was found.
“Immediately in front of the stage, an unidentified individual shouted “gun”. Secret Service agents and Reno Police Officers immediately apprehended the subject,” the Secret Service said in a statement.
“Upon a thorough search of the subject and the surrounding area, no weapon was found,” the statement said.
Trump was removed from the stage mid-speech at around 9:05 p.m. ET. The Republican nominee returned to the stage minutes later and was defiant.
“Nobody said it was gonna be easy for us, but we will never be stopped,” Trump said. He thanked the Secret Service, and continued his speech.
The person taken from the crowd by authorities was a white man in a jacket who appeared to be handcuffed.
