Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was rushed offstage by the Secret Service during a rally in Nevada Saturday night, but returned within minutes.
The agency said in a statement that Trump was removed from the stage at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center after someone shouted “Gun!”, causing a commotion. The Secret Service said that one person was apprehended and no weapon was found after a search of the surrounding area.
KRNV reported that one man holding a “Republicans Against Trump” sign was briefly detained and was later released from custody.
A source told Fox News that someone in the crowd saw another attendee reach around his back and toward his waistband. The first person shouted “Gun!” several times, sparking panic right in front of the stage where Trump was speaking.
Two Secret Service agents quickly surrounded Trump before hustling him off the stage. Trump returned moments later and told the crowd,” “Nobody said it was going to be easy for us. But we will never be stopped. Never, ever be stopped.”
