Welcome to the wondrous world our government's paranoid snitch culture has created.

Via the Olympian:

A typical Tuesday morning for 42-year-old Michael Di Marzo quickly became a citywide multi-jurisdictional manhunt for him and what witnesses thought was a assault rifle in his hand.

Three schools were locked down and delayed as police scoured the area by ground and air, looking for a man described by a teenage tipster as wearing black clothes and a ski mask.

It wasn’t realized until hours later what was believed to be something along the lines of an AR-15 or AK-47 was more of a AU-15: a 15-inch compact “assault umbrella.”

The “ski mask” was a pulled-up black turtle neck sweater paired with a black watch cap.
The man was tracked by a police helicopter to his home, also the police had reportedly already got footage of him from when he was on a city bus. The article doesn't say what happened after police arrived at his home, but fortunately he wasn't shot.

The police encouraged citizens to keep calling them despite this tip from a high school student being dead wrong, they say it's better to call in a false tip than not call. I would strongly disagree, these days calling the police on someone is tantamount to attempted murder.
