MARINA (CBS13) — A combination of rain and panic over recent gun violence had a campus on alert over an umbrella.

Campus police received a report of a person with a possible weapon at his side before 11 a.m. on Tuesday. The campus tweeted out a description of the person, who was wearing dark clothing and had a backpack.

About an hour after the first alert went out, campus police found the man and determined it wasn’t a weapon in his hand, rather a shield from the rain.

No lockdown took place during the incident.

The confusion came a day before a planned walkout on campuses across the nation in support of school shooting victims and gun legislation.
