NORWALK, Conn. (AP) _ A police search in Darien and Norwalk for a reported gunman has come up empty after officials temporarily suspended Metro-North train service and asked local residents to stay indoors.
State police received a report at about 7 a.m. Wednesday about a man displaying a handgun at the Interstate 95 rest stop in Darien, but officers didn’t find anything. All Darien schools were placed on a 90-minute delay.

A Metro-North worker later reported seeing a suspicious man wearing camouflage shorts on the tracks near the Darien-Norwalk line. Train service was stopped temporarily while police searched the tracks, but nothing was found. Metro-North reports delays of five to 10 minutes because of the search.

Searches of the Rowayton and South Norwalk train stations also came up empty.

State police are still investigating.
