Man points gun at Southern California college, no shots

SAN JACINTO, Calif. (AP) — A man pointed a gun Wednesday at a cafeteria table full of students but did not open fire at a Southern California community college, authorities said.

The gunman was still at large, but authorities did not consider it an active shooter situation.

No injuries were reported at Mount San Jacinto College southeast of Los Angeles, Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy Robyn Flores said.

Deputies were called shortly before 10 a.m. and were searching for the gunman on the locked-down campus. Classes were canceled for the day.

The man was described as between 20 and 30 years old and wearing a red bandanna.

There were about 500 people on campus at the time, college officials said. The lockdown was lifted at 1:30 p.m.

Other nearby schools, including an elementary school, were also temporarily locked down.
