Man With Ski Mask & Bike Pump Mistaken For Gunman In Boston

BOSTON (CBS) – The report of a “person with a gun” wearing a mask on Mass. Ave. in Boston on Wednesday morning was a false alarm, according to Boston police.

Police responded to the scene at around 11 a.m. after someone spotted the man walking into a building.

Soon after, officers tracked down the suspect, who had a ski mask and was carrying a bicycle pump in his backpack. He was then sent for a mental evaluation.

Officers then deemed there was no viable threat.
