`Credible threat’ at Cal State Long Beach has been lifted

LONG BEACH (KUSI) – A shelter-in-place alert at Cal State Long Beach has been lifted and a suspect is in custody after a threat prompted officials to advise those on campus to shelter in place and others to stay away.

Campus police and university officials issued the alert about 3:45 p.m. after receiving what was described as a “credible threat,” according to CSULB spokesman Jeff Bliss.

Details about the nature of the threat, or how it was communicated, were not immediately available, Bliss said.

People on campus were advised to move indoors and shelter in place and the public was told to avoid the area.

The lockdown of the campus was being done out of an abundance of caution, Bliss said.

The campus is now open for normal operations and the situation is all clear, according to CSULB police.
