Manhunt Launched for Man in ‘Ski Mask Carrying Assault Rifle’; Turns Out to be Man in Turtleneck Holding Umbrella

 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 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.

(VERY, VERY TRUE!)
