Keep in mind that this happened in Florida. Broward County, Florida.
The lockdown (of three college campuses) lasted for nearly three hours, until almost midnight.
That’s when police say they found the man. He was walking along Stirling Road, far from the campuses. He was carrying a large black umbrella under one arm, a plastic shotgun in his hand.
It was yellow, orange and green.
The man, who police say is 60, matched the student’s description. He had a white beard and was wearing a gray sweater. He said he was on College Avenue earlier but he never pointed the toy gun at anyone, according to police.
Police did not arrest the man or release his name.
But they did seize his toy as evidence.
