Beach in La Jolla reopened after no further signs of shark
A San Diego lifeguard and several beachgoers spotted a 12- to 14-foot great white shark about 50 yards off the beach about 3:15 p.m. Monday. The beach was immediately closed, and swimmers ordered out of the water. Other beaches remained open but advisory signs were posted.
Lifeguards searched the waters by boat and helicopter for several hours but had no further sightings of the shark.
With La Jolla Shores reopened, swimmers returned to the water soon after sunrise. Crowds are expected at all San Diego beaches on the 4th of July holiday.
