BATON ROUGE - City constables said a toy shotgun led to officers being called to the downtown parking garage near Baton Rouge City Hall Monday.

A Constable's Office spokesperson said someone alerted authorities after they saw a person in the garage handling what looked like a rifle or shotgun near their car.

Police and constables closed the garage and searched it for any signs of the weapon. Officers said it turned out to be a toy shotgun the owner was moving into his trunk.

Authorities re-opened the garage just after noon.
