Videos are emerging of police in California drawing their weapons as terrified shoppers evacuated a Sam’s Club store over reports of a gunman at the store. 

The incident unfolded around 5:48 p.m. Wednesday in Fullerton, just outside of Los Angeles, after a Fullerton Police Department statement says they received "reports of a male possibly armed with a shotgun." 

"Officers arrived on scene and immediately worked to evacuate the store," according to the statement. 

But after a "thorough search and investigation, Officers deemed the location safe and no weapons were located," the department added.

The Fullerton police say they "detained a male who was possibly involved in [an] incident outside the store while a thorough search was conducted in and around the building." 

"The detained male was arrested for unrelated warrants and booked at the Fullerton City Jail," the statement added. 

Footage from the scene showed at least six responding police officers – two of which had their weapons drawn – setting up position near one of the entrances of the store.  

"I’m scared," one of the shoppers is heard saying.
