Police question man in Cal State Northridge gunman report
A person of interest wanted in a connection with a report of a gunman on the Cal State Northridge campus was being questioned by law enforcement authorities, officials said Tuesday night.
The person was described as a male and had been sought by authorities after police searched the Oviatt Library and other parts of the campus Tuesday afternoon, university spokeswoman Carmen Ramos Chandler said.
Hundreds of students were evacuated during the search. The library was cleared, Ramos Chandler said, and was scheduled to reopen at 7:45 a.m. Wednesday.
Police received a report at 10:27 a.m. Tuesday of a man who indicated he had a gun. The man was described as 5 feet 8, with short, spiky hair. He was said to be wearing a white T-shirt with the words "human rights violation" and short jeans.
