LA campuses locked down after reports of armed man


LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police hunting for a possible gunman have taken someone into custody, ending a four-hour lockdown at two San Fernando Valley campuses.

Officer Norma Eisenman says dispatchers received a call shortly before 8:30 a.m. Friday about a possibly suicidal 22-year-old man near Pierce College and West Valley Occupational Center in Woodland Hills.

Eisenman says there was concern that the man might have a handgun.

The 400-acre Pierce College and the occupational center were locked down and the Pierce library was searched.

Eisenman says the lockdown ended shortly after 12:30 p.m. when police took a man into custody at a nearby bowling alley.

There's no word on whether he was armed but no injuries are reported.
