A search by Los Angeles police for a man with a gun near Occidental College led to the arrest Wednesday of two men with gang ties, police said.

Officers with the Los Angeles Police Department's gang enforcement unit saw an alleged gang member carrying a weapon about noon Wednesday near the Eagle Rock campus and alerted colleagues.

Officers blocked off an area at Avenue 45 and Alumni Drive and began searching for the gunman.

Police detained the two men but were still searching for the weapon spotted earlier, said Cmdr. Andy Smith.
