2 SoCal colleges locked down after unspecified threat

GLENDORA, Calif. (AP) — Campus officials locked down two Southern California college campuses after one received an unspecified threat.

There were no reports of injuries.

Students and others on the campuses of Citrus College in Glendora and nearby Azusa Pacific University in Azusa were told to seek shelter in buildings Tuesday until given an all-clear message.

Glendora police spokeswoman Shawna Celello tells the Los Angeles Times only Citrus College was threatened.

The two-year community college announced the lockdown on its Twitter feed shortly before noon.

Azusa Pacific, a private Christian school located only a few blocks away, followed suit an hour later.

Students and faculty not on campus were told to stay away while police investigate, and local bus service was rerouted.

The colleges are about 25 miles northeast of Los Angeles.
