NATIONAL CITY (CNS) - A report that a man was wielding was appeared to be a pistol along Interstate 805 in the South Bay Wednesday prompted law enforcement authorities to close a section briefly.

A passer-by made an emergency call shortly before 11:30 a.m. to report seeing the possibly armed man next to a car and a recreational vehicle was pulled over on the shoulder of northbound lanes, near state Route 52 in National City, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Officers halted all northbound traffic in the area and detained four people at gunpoint, CHP spokesman Tommy Doerr said.

All lanes were reopened within about 15 minutes.

Ultimately, no arrests were made and no weapon was found, according to CHP Officer Jake Sanchez.
