The "weapon" reportedly carried by a masked man who caused a lockdown on parts of Georgia Southern University's campus Dec. 5 turned out to be an umbrella, police said. A university police report released Wednesday in response to an Open Records Act request by the Statesboro Herald says that a woman who saw Daniel Ambrose Cistola, 23, of Statesboro Place Circle, "wearing all black, black gloves and a gorilla mask" called to report the sighting around 8:06 a.m. Dec. 5. She said the man later identified as Cistola carried "what appeared to be a rifle hanging from his back with the strap around his chest," the report states.
