Police question man with gun report

TRAVERSE CITY — City police called off a search for a man said to have waved a gun inside Northern Lakes Community Mental Health after questions arose about the original report.

Officers responded to a report Thursday about 11 a.m. that a man waved a gun in the Hall Street building's lobby and then left. Traverse City Police Capt. Mike Ayling said a officers stopped their search after an hour.

"Nobody else, including several people in the same vicinity, saw this person," he said. "He was said to have gone north and nobody saw him. I think it would be difficult for someone with a gun to walk north into that crowd and not be seen."

Ayling said he believed a CMH patient made the initial call.

Greg Paffhouse, CEO of Northern Lakes Community Mental Health, said he heard several different accounts of what occurred, and none included any specific threats. He said police responded "very appropriately."
