OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a man who they say carried a shotgun into an Omaha-area store.

Police were sent to the Irvington Walmart store around 11:45 a.m. Thursday after an Uber driver reported dropping off an armed man. Officers found two people in a break room and took both into custody. One was released after police questioning. The other - a 21-year-old man - was jailed on suspicion of terroristic threats and use of a weapon to commit a felony.

Authorities say the man had been a store employee. Court records don’t show that he’s been formally charged.

No gunshots or injuries have been reported. Police say a loaded shotgun was recovered at the store.
