Boulder police responded to a report of man dressed as a leprechaun in the parking lot of King Soopers at 30th Street and Arapahoe Avenue around 1 p.m. Wednesday.
Boulder police Sgt. Fred Gerhardt said police received a call saying there was a man dressed as a leprechaun jumping in and out from between cars. He was pretending to shoot at people with his fingers and may have made obscene gestures, as well.
"I think that's why they called us," Gerhardt said. "He was acting bizarre."
But officers were unable to locate anybody matching the description of the leprechaun.
Gerhardt said this was the first time Boulder police have received a complaint about a leprechaun, and the man is not someone known to police.
