Authorities do not plan to release further information until later Tuesday.

On Facebook, a Grover Beach woman said that the SWAT team was on her roof and in her backyard. The SWAT team banged on her door at 5 a.m. to inform her they would they would be on the roof and in the backyard, she wrote.


Good morning, we’re from the government and we’re here to help. And incidentally, we might be on your roof carrying fully automatic guns. Just another morning in Grover or Oceano.


Much ado about nothing I’m sure. But the boys got to get all dressed up in their tactical gear and tote their weapons.
