A report of a man allegedly pulling out a weapon inside Alvarado Hospital Tuesday night was a false alarm, San Diego police confirmed Wednesday morning.
According to SDPD Lt. Kevin Mayer, a woman called police around 9 p.m. to report that a man had allegedly pointed a gun at her. The suspect was seen heading down Alvarado Road in a pickup truck, near the hospital, and was pulled over by police.
L.t Mayer said no weapon was found in the man’s truck. Police discovered the woman who called officers was mistaken and the object the man had been holding was actually a hair brush, Lt. Mayer said.
Officials at Alvarado Hospital said the suspect was never inside the hospital.
No one was arrested or injured.
