Was the security scare at his rally planted by Trump's enemies?

A security scare marred Republican nominee Donald Trump's rally in Nevada but the presidential aspirant remained unperturbed and showed determination to continue his speech before supporters.

Someone from the big crowd at the Reno Sparks Convention Center shouted "Gun!", prompting two Secret Service agents to rush to Trump's side and take him off the stage.

Trump quickly returned to the stage moments later. He resolutely told his supporters, "Nobody said it was going to be easy for us. But we will never be stopped. Never, ever be stopped."

The secret service said that one person was apprehended. A search in the area however yielded no weapon.

One source told Fox News that another attendee was seen reaching around his back and towards his waistband. One person shouted "Gun!" several times, triggering panic just right in front of the stage where Trump was speaking.

One report has it that a man carrying a Republicans Against Trump sign was apprehended and detained, but was later released.

A witness by the name of David Newton said he saw the man holding the sign trying to get closer to the stage before the ensuing disturbance. Newton noticed that the man has something on his belly, but he could not establish what it was. When someone screamed

"gun!", people jumped on the man.

Secret Service agents said that the general public attending presidential campaign sites need to be screened by magnetometer prior to entering the protected area.

It is not yet clear whether the commotion merely emanated from a misunderstanding on the motive of the man holding the anti-Trump sign, or trouble was deliberately planted by those who wish to undermine Trump's campaign just two days before election.

Trump showed his dedication when he came back quickly and reiterated that there's just no stopping him.
