Units respond to report of armed subject near Courthouse. No danger found.

For everyone in the downtown Nashville area within the last 30 minutes and were wondering what was going on

NCSO and Nashville PD units responded to reports of a subject walking up Washington Street carrying a rifle headed towards the Courthouse. Units responded to the area with quickness and the "suspect"'was located however it was determined that he did not have a weapon. He was carrying an item in his hand that may have been mistaken for a weapon. There is no further cause for alarm as the situation has been cleared. Thank you for all those who were caught up in the traffic.
