Mount San Jacinto College Locked Down After Report of Man With Gun

SAN JACINTO (CNS) - Mount San Jacinto College and other schools in the area were placed on lockdown today in response to a report of a man with a gun.

Riverside County sheriff's officials said they received the report around 9:30 a.m.

There were no reports of any shots being fired or any injuries.

College officials posted a notice on the school's website, saying the campus was locked down. People on campus were told to shelter in place, and classes were canceled for the rest of the day.

In response, authorities ordered other nearby schools within the San Jacinto Unified School District -- San Jacinto Leadership Academy, Clayton A. Record Junior Elementary School and Betty Gibble Learning Center -- to be locked down as well.

The Riverside County Sheriff's Department tweeted that “this is not an active shooter incident.”
