An unspecified threat prompted a lockdown and police search of Citrus College in Glendora Tuesday, while nearby Azusa Pacific University also went on lockdown as a precaution.
The investigation began late Tuesday morning with “a threat at Citrus College,” according to the Glendora Police Department.
Officials at Citrus College placed the campus on lockdown, and tweeted that the incident was “not a drill.” University officials urged people to stay clear of the campus, and advised those already on campus to turn off lights, lock doors and remain quiet.
The threat was phoned in to the campus, KCAL9/CBS2 reported.
In response to the Citrus College situation, nearby Azusa Pacific University also was placed on lockdown and university officials urged people on that campus to shelter in place.
One person was taken into custody around 3:30 p.m. at Citrus College, but the lockdown there continued, Glendora police said without immediately elaborating.
Azusa Pacific announced about 4 p.m. that the lockdown at that college had been lifted and around 6 p.m. Glendora police announced that the lockdown at Citrus College had been lifted as well.
