UPDATE: Suspect Under Arrest After Shooting at San Diego Marathon Finish Line – Details Here (VIDEO)


San Diego Marathon

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.

One officer is being treated after accidentally shooting himself in the foot while confronting the gunman. He is expected to recover fully.

Here are additional details from ABC 7 in San Diego, as well as video from the scene.

NBC San Diego has learned a person who reportedly opened fire in downtown San Diego as thousands of people participated in an annual marathon has been taken into custody.

The first report of multiple shots fired came in at approximately 11:20 a.m. There are no details on any potential victims.

The alleged shooter was at the City Hall Parkade near the route of the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon, according to city officials.

A source close to the investigation has confirmed for NBC 7 that the suspect, a woman, was in custody.

Thousands of runners were participating in the marathon that runs from State Route 163 along B Street and ends at Union Street.

As of 12:16 p.m., the marathon has resumed.

The parking garage involved in the incident has been closed for cars going in and out, leaving some who ran the race or cheered on the runners stranded.

One NBC 7 news crew is at UC San Diego Medical Center where a San Diego police patrol car is surrounded by crime scene tape.

Here are additional tweets from the eyewitnesses at the scene.
