San Diego police rushed to a community north of downtown Wednesday for what they described as an active shooter inside an apartment building using a high-powered rifle.
The threat to the community prompted officials to shut down traffic on the ground and in the air as San Diego International Airport is located less than two miles away.
SDPD were called to 2445 Brant Street in the Bankers Hill area just after 9 a.m. for a domestic violence call. When they arrived, they immediately came under fire, officials said.
"They were able to use a K9 to try and clear the apartment. At some point when they were inside the apartment, rounds began to come out of a door, an interior door, nearly hitting the officers," Lt. Scott Wahl said.
So far there is no reports of deaths or injuries, and hopefully is stays that way.
Just another day of the 2nd Amendment keeping Americans safe.
(P.S. I will provide updates to this post as they become available.)
Update: There are also reports that all flights to and from the San Diego airport are being diverted or are on hold, and a local elementary school is on lock down, until this situation is resolved.
Update 2: The gunman has been taken into custody.
No fatalities, which is undoubtedly the best possible outcome for an incident like this one.
