A Skokie resident reported a man displayed to him what appeared to be a gun Friday after a traffic altercation in west Evanston.

The interaction took place between Church Street and Brown Avenue, but the suspect drove north on Brown Avenue, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. The man was described as driving a green vehicle, and the Skokie resident was unsure if the object was a gun or not because it was dark outside.

Police found a vehicle that matched the description, but found no gun upon inspection, Dugan said.

There are no suspects, Dugan said.
