Toy Gun Raises Alarm at City College

A City College student raised some alarm last Wednesday after bringing a clear plastic airsoft gun to campus. Before notifying campus security, two faculty members escorted the student — who police said was acting strangely but didn’t threaten anyone — from a building on West Campus and told him to return the toy to his vehicle. The student was later located with the gun still in his possession. An incident report was filed with the Santa Barbara Police Department, which decided not to file criminal charges but instead help coordinate mental health services for the student in his hometown of Ventura.
