That the police had a marked with are telling us that they have a suspect down on campus is not clear anybody's been injured.
But -- but a number of reports that a man receive a man was shooting at cars just -- noon our time so.
A roughly twenty minutes or so ago and according to reports a worker on campus also heard dozens of gunshots and saw students as well -- Trying to get out of the library -- -- this -- all final exam time here as well so with a very busy campus anyway as I mentioned.
-- large junior college campus Santa Monica City College is not far from the ocean.
Just south of the ten freeway if you know the Los Angeles area and also.
To the west of downtown as you mentioned also separate the president is in this area in fact not far almost halfway between where were located and the shooting.
The actual intersection would be shut down for the presidential motorcade to move through so you have a number of issues going on here -- have a no fly area as well.
And across the standard -- -- some other interesting police reports as well we don't know these are all connected but a house fire some other stuff so as you know shepherd.
In this type of situation.
You have to get this information you have to clarify you have to ensure that this information.
Of course is straight what we know.
Straight right now is that a shooter according to Santa Monica police is down on campus and we don't know if there any other victims but the school.
This City College -- -- City College is all locked Anderson live video right now of the -- on Pico boulevard for anybody knows the Los Angeles area -- It's actually there -- people -- not -- -- in this age and schools about out isn't it -- -- listen -- to this yet.
-- I don't take on it at at Adam hang on.
We can we listen in -- eighties here's what we're watching this is ABC seven our network news service affiliate that serves Los Angeles in the south plan.
And they have a reporter on the ground there as you can see people -- just kind of standing around waiting to find out exactly what's happened.
There are a lot of pieces to disposal -- when I've been able to discern.
A number of you know what we would consider to be local news events happening all at the same time.
Right around the spot where the president is and I'm not trying to draw anything together not trying to give you the impression -- this is an anyway coordinated because I have nothing to indicate that it is.
But it's a little weird.
So we have this shooter on campus we don't know of anybody got hit.
But we know the shooter is down we presume the police have shot the shooter that's the indications we're getting.
And you can -- -- that you know they're they're seriously ready for action out there.
You said the intersection there on -- is is shut down is that right Adam.
Yet that the whole the whole campus shut down this is not a small community college all right 30000 students go here.
With very large facility and again I'd I'd been on a bunch of all sorts there are -- you can get in off campus very open area but the intersections in that area shut down as well.
As the campus itself you can -- a lot of students have come out to some of the businesses across the street and away from where this took place and you were told took place in the library area on campus.
And are now -- now I'm told this is from.
From Reuters news agency with the suspect is now in custody.
After the shooting on the Santa Monica College.
It left a number of people -- what set.
This is according to police it left a number of people injured what we don't know yet.
Is whether people might have been injured in an attempt to get away from the sky.
Or whether this guy shot any of these people we don't know but we have a witness being interviewed by ABC seven and when that when that interview gets in the way.
I'll take you there -- it in the meantime we're waiting to find out.
Exactly what went down -- what this -- is accused of doing.
It's very possible that a number of people were shot here but the police have not given us that information yet though there are reports indicate that out there Fox News cannot confirm it.
