shooting. it happened just before 9:30 this morning on 35th street, just a couple of blocks away from an elementary school. the school was placed on lockdown as a precaution. authorities say the offduty officer shot someone he believed was armed. details on what exactly led up to the shooting have still not been released. officers say they did locate a gun in that area. the person shot was taken to a hospital. new at six, marin county supervisors have unanimously approved a moratorium on short-term rentals in towns in west marin, and that includes the scenic stinson beach. john ramos on the effort to protect the fabric of those communities. >> reporter: online booking apps have made it easy to find a place to stay for a weekend getaway at small towns like stinson beach. but some say it's gotten too easy, and now the county has put the brakes on it. in coastal communities like stinson, there have always been people who would rent out their vacation homes when they weren't there. and the community has benefitted from the tourism.
6:05 pm
but with the online apps, even modest cottages can command a much higher prices than if they were rented to full-time residents. so many of them now sit empty, waiting for weekend guests. that's drawn the attention of the board of supervisors. lonte housing, particularly on the coast has reached acritical point. more and more working families are being displaced. this over time caused the hollowing out of our coastal villages. >> reporter: some residents say that's already happened. margheret clayton operates the redwood house bed and breakfast. it only has three rooms. so she doesn't have much trouble filling the place. but she says it's the town itself being hurt. >> there is only one school now. they don't have the two schools. there aren't residents that live here anymore full time. it chajs it so it's not really a town anymore where people live, you know. and they have things going on. it's mother just like rental in and out. >> reporter: it's making it
