Utica, N.Y. - A bit of a scary scene outside the Olbiston Apartments in Utica Tuesday night, but despite the large police response, including officers with their rifles drawn, the incident turned out to be nothing.

Utica Police spokesperson Bryan Coromato says police were called around 5:00 P.M. by a third party for the report of an emotionally disturbed person who could have a gun, and said they would use it against police if they came to the residence.

Coromato says officers were unable to reach anyone inside the specified apartment and they cleared the scene. He says rifles are deployed during gun-related calls, it is not uncommon.
