A man who called police, saying another man shot his cousin in Escondido with an AK-47 was arrested at Palomar College in an apparent suicide-by-cop attempt. No victims were found in Escondido and the Sheriff's Department said the caller wanted to get into a shootout with deputies. The campus was sealed off but was closed for winter break. Deputies searched for the man, who was arrested without a struggle after giving deputies a description of himself. He had a loaded, small-caliber handgun. Mental illness may be a factor.
