Emails were also sent from SLCC Emergency Operations asking anyone on the Redwood campus stay inside until “notified that that situation is clear.” The shelter-in-place order was lifted by 2:29 p.m.
“The campus is safe and has been searched and secured by law enforcement. You may continue your activities freely,” Emergency Operations said in an email and voicemail sent to students, faculty and staff.
It was unclear whether the suspects had been apprehended by police at the time the order was lifted.
