DAYTON — UPDATE @ 3:53 p.m.:

“There’s a guy in front of our elementary school sleeping,” the caller told a dispatcher. “He’s sleeping, but I can see a gun.”
The caller said the man, later identified as 22-year-old Michael Osburn, was crouched in the fetal position by Ruskin Elementary School’s front entrance. A gun was reportedly laying behind him.
The caller also noted a bike near Osburn.
“He must have been here all night,” the caller said.
Police later determined that the firearm was a BB gun.
