The report of a potential gunman on campus at Santa Rosa Junior College’s Santa Rosa Campus were found to be unfounded Thursday afternoon. The JC released the following statement on the incident:
On Thursday, Jan. 17 at approximately 2:15 p.m., Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) District Police received a report from a female student in Analy Hall on the Santa Rosa campus. She claimed that a relative was in the building with a firearm and was “coming to kill” her.
The police immediately sent out an alert to lock down campus and went to the location of the report. They cleared the building and escorted students and employees out. A search revealed that the accused subject was not in the area.
The investigation is ongoing, but there is no immediate threat and the lockdown has been lifted.
