MARYSVILLE -- Police here were looking for an angry man Wednesday evening after he reportedly threatened to start shooting people at Kmart.

No one was injured.

The incident began about 6 p.m. at the store in the 9600 block of State Avenue. It didn't end until after the building was emptied of customers, the SWAT team had swept the store and surveillance video was reviewed to confirm the man had left.

He reportedly became angry when he overheard an employee talking about store security. He apparently believed the statements were directed at him. Police say there weren't. Either way, he became enraged, claimed he had a gun and was going to start shooting people.

"Officers were unable to identify anyone in the store that had actually seen a gun or any type of weapon in the possession of the suspect," police Cmdr. Robb Lamoureux said in a press release.

The man was described as white, heavy set and approximately 6 feet tall. He was wearing a gray buttoned shirt and a black bandana around his head. He may have been accompanied by a woman with blonde hair.

Detectives planned to further study the video in an attempt to identify the suspect, Lamoureux said.

Update 12 p.m.: Police just released some photos. They are attached.
