Officers checked the area and did not report locating anyone matching the given description.
At 3:31, Fire Medical crews were to an apartment in the 400 block of California Street to investigate a Carbon Monoxide alarm sounding, one person was also reporting feeling ill, possibly related to elevated levels of Carbon Monoxide.
