Azusa Pacific University ordered students and staff to shelter in place on Sunday after a report of apparent gun shots near campus.
Police at the university said there was an emergency near the campus at around 12:30 p.m., with administrators saying about an hour later that there was “gun shot activity” nearby. That prompted the lockdown.
Police haven’t confirmed if any shots were fired. The Azusa Police Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Multiple law enforcement agencies descended on the area, including Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department helicopters. A Sheriff’s spokeswoman declined to comment further on the situation.
UPDATE #1- There is active GUN SHOT ACTIVITY near the Azusa Pacific University campus requiring police action. Please shelter in place, stay indoors, and away from windows. Additional instructions to follow.
