Man caught riding bike in San Diego carrying sawed-off shotgun


SAN DIEGO, CA – It’s not sure what he was thinking, riding his bike around San Diego with a sawed-off shotgun, but probably nothing good.  Early this morning, San Diego police witnessed a man riding his bicycle at night without a light around 3:00AM.

“When we turned on our spotlight we saw him throw what looked like a shotgun on the ground and continue on,” police said. “We got a closer look and confirmed it was indeed a shotgun. We caught up to him and told him to stop. He listened to us and complied. Turns out the man was a convicted felon and wasn’t supposed to own any firearms, let alone a shotgun with a sawed off barrel. He was arrested for a variety of weapons violations.”

Police did not release the suspect’s name.
