Martin’s West was evacuated Friday morning after a man threatened to kill himself during a business convention.

Police said just before 10 a.m. the man got on stage and threatened to kill himself with a toy Nerf gun.

The man had also placed four garbage bags under tables at the event and police evacuated the building out of an abundance of caution.

The bomb squad later determined the trash bags were full of clothes and money.

The man was taken in for a psychological evaluation.
