A report of a person roaming the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills with an assault rifle is a false alarm.Lt. Oceal (oh-SEEL') Victory of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says someone mistook a ROTC student practicing with a fake rifle to be an armed gunman.

The report prompted the school to shut down and search the sprawling university grounds 20 miles south of downtown Los Angeles.
