Man did not have a gun at Henderson voting site

A false report of a man carrying a gun caused a brief disruption at a Henderson voting site Tuesday, police said.

A juvenile called police about 3:30 p.m. reporting seeing someone with a gun at the Green Valley Library, Henderson police spokeswoman Michelle French said.

When officers got there, they saw a man matching the description, but he allowed police to pat him down and did not have a weapon. The incident was first reported by KLAS-TV.

Police left the scene about 4 p.m., French said. Officers did not evacuate the library.

Voting was interrupted for about 15 minutes, but Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin said it appeared everyone who showed up to cast a ballot was able to. About six voters were present once voting resumed, Kulin said.
