Report of Shots Fired at SDSU a Hoax: Cops

The report of shots fired in an attempted robbery on the campus of San Diego State University Monday was a hoax according to investigators.

In the initial report, a man said he was in the area east of the university’s Viejas Arena around midnight when several suspects demanded his backpack at gun point.

The suspects also fired several shots that hit the ground the man told officials.

San Diego State University campus police investigated the incident and told NBC 7 San Diego there was not enough evidence to support the man's claim.

Officials determined the report to be unfounded.
