‘MENTALLY DISTURBED PERSON’ IMITATED SHOOTING SOUNDS WITH SKATEBOARD

Police reported the potential shooting was actually just a man banging a skateboard on the floor.

Police Chief Eddie García said officers confronted the suspect, who they described as “mentally disturbed.”

The man then made hand gestures mimicking firing a gun, although he did not heave a firearm on his person, García said.

“We thank God that this was what it was,” he said.
