Several Tacoma police officers responded Friday night to a report of man threatening others with a loaded shotgun at a business in the 5400 block of South Tacoma Way.

Patrons of the business said the suspect aimed the gun before driving off.

Police detained and interviewed several subjects, whom they identified in their report as “Skinheads or racists.”

One of those detained was identified as the man who had the shotgun; however officers could not locate a shotgun or any other weapon.

Nobody was arrested.
