DETROIT (AP) -

A man caught on surveillance photos about the time another man made it through security at two adjacent buildings housing courtrooms and Detroit city hall with what might have been a handgun in a briefcase no longer is considered a person of interest.

Detroit police Sgt. Michael Woody says in a release Monday evening that the man in the photos was identified and interviewed by investigators. The investigation remains open.

The Coleman A. Young Municipal Center was on lockdown Monday while police searched for the man who was allowed inside before guards realized he might have a gun. An X-ray scan appears to show a revolver in his briefcase.

Police Chief James Craig said there was no "active shooter" or any specific threat.

A private company handles security at the checkpoint.
