LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A person was in custody Friday after Pierce College was evacuated for threats of a suicidal man with a gun.
Authorities were alerted to a threat around 11 a.m. after a man reportedly left a note that was discovered by his mother.
The note included threats that he would go to a school in the area with a gun, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
The campus, located at 6201 Winnetka Avenue in Woodland Hills, was later evacuated as a precaution around 11:30 a.m. Students were also advised to not come to the school.
