Lockdown today

Today, during lunch time, a pursuit ended on the 10 freeway that ended with the suspect abandoning his car, jumping the fence adjacent to the freeway and then jumping the north fence onto Aztec Circle. At this point, we called for a lockdown. The suspect ran down toward the campus and was apprehended by 2 employees. Very shortly thereafter, police arrived to assist in taking the suspect into custody

I want to thank the quick actions of all of our employees to get our students indoors and to safety. Normal school activities have resumed. Thank you.
