SAN MARCOS, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say gun-toting police stormed a classroom at California State University San Marcos after a drama class skit on school violence sparked real panic.
University Police Chief Ronald Hackenberg says students saw a seemingly wounded woman fall out of a doorway shortly before 4 p.m. Thursday at the San Diego-area school and thought she'd been shot.
Students fled and called 911. The campus activated its emergency system, which warned students by speaker and text message to barricade their doors.
Hackenberg tells the North County Times that campus police and county sheriff's deputies finally stormed the drama classroom and held about 15 students at gunpoint. They were told students were performing a skit with cap guns and didn't realize they'd caused the panic.
