Cops: He Threatened to “Hurt Everyone at the Office”

Brandon Murray worked at Alert Ambulance

A San Diego man driving around with guns and ammo is arrested the same day he threatened co-workers, said San Diego police.

Brandon Murray, 27, was arrested during a traffic stop on Monday. Police said he had four semi-automatic handguns in his vehicle when he was pulled over. He is being held at the San Diego Central Jail on two counts of "threatening to commit a crime which will result in great bodily injury" and one count of spousal abuse.  

Investigators said they became aware of the situation at about 11:40 a.m. on Monday when a worker at Alert Ambulance in the Midway District called 911. The caller said an employee had made threats to “hurt everyone at the office,” according to investigators.

Officers went out to the office in the 3550 block of Hancock Street and began investigating Murray, then sent out information to police throughout the city. Police said that while the officers were at the office, Murray called again and said he was headed over to collect his personal belongings.

Murray and his wife were spotted coming home to their Colina del Sol residence at about 2:15 p.m. After they again left, police conducted a high-risk stop at Winona and Orange avenues and took Murray into custody without incident.
