Allegations of a man carrying a gun near a school in Beverly Hills prompted a brief police investigation.

According to the Beverly Hills Police Department, investigators received a heads-up from the Los Angeles Police Department regarding a social media post that allegedly showed a man carrying a knife near Beverly Hills High School, but geographically in Los Angeles.

Both departments investigated the alleged sighting. LAPD eventually found a fake gun near the area.

As of Thursday afternoon, no injuries or arrests have been reported in the investigation.
