San Jacinto Campus All Clear: Law enforcement officials have lifted a lockdown of the San Jacinto Campus at about 3:30 on Friday, June 28, 2013 after an extensive search for a suspicious person. MSJC Police, Riverside County Sheriffs and California Highway Patrol secured the campus and Child Care Center at noon when a suspicious man was spotted on campus. There were no threats to the campus or individuals and no injuries. Authorities, who searched with K9 teams, searched for the man in an effort to rule out if he was suspected of any crimes. The search included all buildings, the grounds and nearby residential areas. Superintendent/President Dr. Roger Schultz, who was alerted, arrived at the campus to receive updates from law enforcement about the safety of the children, staff and students and progress of the search. The campus is closed to classes on Fridays, but the child care centers remained opened. Extra security was posted outside and inside the centers to ensure the safety of about 8 children and 8 adults inside. Parents were immediately notified of the lockdown and have been notified that it is now all clear.
