LE MARS, Iowa -- It turns out, the "suspicious person carrying a handgun" near the Le Mars Community Middle and High School early last week was only toting a pellet gun. 

According to a press release from the Le Mars Police Department, the case was closed when they found that the gun was only a realistic-looking airsoft gun, and that there were no laws violated and no intent to harm anyone. 

The incident, which occurred Feb. 12 at the 800 block of Second Ave SW, led to an increased police presence in the area around the school.
