Reno Police say the gang unit responded to a report of a man carrying a concealed gun at the Grand Sierra Resort. RPD says the man was followed onto I-80 and pulled over. Officers say the man had a gun, without the proper permit. KOLO viewers report traffic was brought to a stand-still heading toward California.
