Donald Trump was briefly rushed off the stage by security during a rally in Reno, apparently after a protester interrupted his speech.
In response to initial commotion in the crowd, Trump suggested the disruption had been planned by Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. He was then hustled off the stage as shoving broke out in the crowd.
A few minutes later, Trump returned, thanked the Secret Service, and continued his speech.
He later issued a statement, saying "I would like to thank the United States Secret Service and the law enforcement resources in Reno and the state of Nevada for their fast and professional response.

"I also want to thank the many thousands of people present for their unwavering and unbelievable support. Nothing will stop us - we will make America great again!"
A Secret Service spokesperson said in a statement that an "unidentified individual" shouted "gun" in the audience, CNN reported. The statement said no weapon was found after a "thorough search."
