Report of gun at Campbell school appears to be ‘swatting’ incident

CAMPBELL (KRON) — Officers with the Campbell Police Department were called to Rosemary Elementary School after getting a report of a gun on the campus.

The police department sent out this tweet around 2:45 p.m. Tuesday.

After searching the school, officers said that it appears the report was a hoax. Campbell police are calling the report a “swatting” incident. Swatting is when a false report is made intended to draw a response from the SWAT team.

Rosemary Elementary School is at 401 W. Hamiliton Avenue in Campbell, just east of San Tomas Expressway.
