(NBC SAN DIEGO) San Diego police rushed to a community north of downtown Wednesday for what they described as an active shooter inside an apartment building using a high-powered rifle.
The threat to the community prompted officials to shut down traffic on the ground and in the air as San Diego International Airport is located less than two miles away.
SDPD were called to 2445 Brant Street in the Bankers Hill area just after 9 a.m. for a domestic violence call. When they arrived, they immediately came under fire, officials said.
