Multiple media sources are reporting that Bay Area police are asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating a man who allegedly told a sporting goods store employee he wanted to purchase a gun and “shoot up a school.”
“The customer reported hearing a man comment to an employee that he wanted to purchase a firearm,” according to the San Mateo police. “The man then threatened to shoot up a school and asked the employee for a good shirt to wear.”
Officers who arrived at the store searched for the man, but did not find him.
Witnesses described the man as a transient, white and about 35 years old. He was last seen wearing a camouflage jacket and blue jeans.
