Community: Report of Gunman at CSU San Marcos Unfounded

There were reports of a possible sighting of a gunman on the campus of Cal State San Marcos this morning. Deputies determined that the report was unfounded and the man was actually carrying an UMBRELLA. There is no danger to anyone on campus.

The call came in just before 9:00 a.m. The witness told deputies
a 30 to 40-year-old man with a shaved head, wearing a black shirt and jeans was carrying what appeared to be a long gun on campus.

Deputies from the San Marcos Sheriff’s Station immediately responded and set up a perimeter. They searched the campus and found the man fitting the description and determined he was not carrying a gun, but an umbrella.
