Avett Brothers postpone show after man enters venue with gun

TROUTDALE, Ore. (AP) — The Avett Brothers band postponed a sold-out show in Oregon after a man showed up to the venue with a gun, then disappeared into the crowd.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports the popular roots-rock band called off its concert Saturday at the McMenamins Edgefield in Troutdale after it says the man triggered a metal detector when entering the venue.

The band wrote on its website that the man claimed he was an out-of-state police officer and showed a badge. The band says the man walked into the crowd before security could verify his story.

A McMenamins spokeswoman and the show’s producers say the incident did not warrant evacuation or endanger the audience.

The sheriff’s office says it has no credible information of a threat and has not opened a criminal investigation.

McMenamins says it’s working to reschedule the show.
