SAN DIEGO (AP) — Authorities say a 10-year-old boy is in custody after he fired two shotgun rounds at police in San Diego during a two-hour standoff. No one was hurt.
Police said Thursday that the boy will be evaluated by mental health professionals.
The boy’s mother called police shortly after 9 a.m. and said he had a knife and was slashing furniture.
Police say he then locked himself into a backyard shed and fired twice at officers. He turned himself in shortly after 11 a.m.
Police evacuated several homes in the neighborhood and put a nearby school on lockdown.
