A man stood at an intersection outside of Santa Monica College Friday and began shooting aimlessly at passing cars. The shooter is in custody.
Santa Monica College is a two year learning center with an enrollment of about 34,000 students. It is located in Santa Monica, California, west of Los
Angeles, and just a couple of miles from the ocean.
The incident began just before noon on Friday. There are several injuries due to gunshot wounds, a few were reported to be in critical condition. One of those shot was the alleged shooter, according to Police Sgt. Rudy Flores.
Police continue to search the 38-acre campus of Santa Monica College. Witnesses reported a second gunman, who they claimed ran into the campus area. That has been unconfirmed.
Sergeant Flores said that they received calls that a man was standing on a corner shooting randomly at vehicles passing by. One of them was a bus. He is in custody, reportedly being treated for gunshot wounds.
