Dave Burd

Officials confirmed a stand-off situation at Date Palm Country Club Saturday evening was a "mistaken report."

The incident was first reported by a viewer after 8:40 p.m. Saturday. There was a heavy police presence at one of the homes near the country club gate. 

A spokesperson of the management company that oversees the country club sent the following statement:

On Saturday evening, a report was made to the local police of an unknown individual carrying some sort of weapon on the property. Police responded promptly, closing access points and searching the community. They were unable to find any such person and it is our understanding they have concluded that it was a mistaken report. The safety and well-being of all residents and their property are very important to us, and management has cooperated fully with the police as they investigated this report.
