LAS VEGAS (KLAS/CNN) – Dozens of police cars responded to a Las Vegas mall Thursday night after authorities received reports of a man walking around with a gun.

Officials said they obtained video of a person wearing a mask and carrying a long gun.

Officers shut down the immediate area and searched Boulevard Mall several times, but were at first unable to locate a suspect.

No shots were fired and no injuries were reported.

Police arrested the suspected masked gunman later Thursday night, KVVU-TV reported.

Police said the gun "appears to be fake." The suspect was not identified.
