A Monterey school was placed on lockdown as authorities investigated a man shooting pigeons with a pellet gun on a nearby roof, according to the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office.
Around 2 p.m. Monday, students from private York School reported seeing a man with a rifle on a neighboring rooftop, and deputies placed the school on lockdown as they investigated the call.
Units from the Salinas and Monterey patrol areas of the sheriff’s office, a sheriff’s office K-9 unit, a sheriff’s bailiff, the sheriff’s air unit and the Monterey Police Department responded to the scene.
Deputies cleared the parking lot and the offices and determined the building owner at 24560 Silver Cloud Court was on the roof trying to eradicate pigeons with a pellet gun.
The man had left the area before authorities arrived but was compliant once contacted and admitted to using the pellet gun.
