Omaha police found but did not arrest the man believed responsible for the lockdown Wednesday of a South Omaha landmark.
After the nearly two-hour incident — which involved a police search for an armed man in the Livestock Exchange Building — officers later found the man at a different location.
But they found no weapons on him and didn’t have enough evidence to make an arrest, said Officer James Shade, a police spokesman.
Officers arrived at the exchange building about 4 p.m., looking for a former tenant who was angry about being evicted, Shade said.
The managers of the building near 30th and L Streets told police they had reason to believe the man was armed.
Officers searched the entire 11-story building. Shade said the lockdown was lifted about 5:40 p.m.
