A suspect is under arrest after a shooting on Sunday near the finish line of the Rock ‘n Roll San Diego Marathon.
It does not appear that there are any injuries to runners or spectators, and the threat is over.
Shots were reportedly exchanged between the suspect and police.
The suspect is reportedly a black woman in her 50s, who allegedly fired the shots inside of a parking garage on the marathon route, near the finish line. She then reportedly pointed the gun at herself before being taken into custody by San Diego police. There are reports her “gun” was actually an air-gun that shoots pellets, but this is unconfirmed.
Reports say the woman on the roof of the parking garage, overlooking the marathon route.
