Reports of armed man on Grossmont College campus deemed unfounded

EL CAJON (KUSI) — A reported sighting of a man who appeared to be armed with a gun in a parking lot at Grossmont College Tuesday triggered a search, but no such person was found.

A student reported seeing the seemingly armed man in a car at the El Cajon campus shortly after 2 p.m., said Anne Krueger, spokeswoman for Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District.

Out of an "abundance of caution,” administrators locked down a daycare center on the grounds of the school while sheriff’s deputies searched the campus and its environs by ground and from aboard a law enforcement helicopter.

The personnel found no threats, and the incident caused no class disruptions, Krueger said.
