Community Update:  Incident at King Middle School on 5/9/2019

Yesterday afternoon, officers responded to King Middle School after receiving a call that there was an armed man on campus.  After determining that the suspect had already left the campus, officers interviewed many witnesses and reviewed the school’s video surveillance recordings.  During the investigation, we were able to identify the suspect.  Later that evening, the suspect came to the Berkeley Police Department and voluntarily gave a statement.  After reviewing all of the information, we have determined there is no conclusive evidence to indicate that a firearm was actually on campus.  The case will be forwarded to Detectives for further review.
