AUSD lockdown lifted, suspect apprehended

Updated 10:22 a.m.:

The lockdown on Alhambra Unified School District schools is currently being lifted due to the arrest of a suspect, according to Sgt. Jerry Johnson of the Alhambra Police Department. "I just received a call about 10 minutes ago that Santa Monica has made an arrest on the case," Johnson said. "Our schools are no longer on lockdown, everything is back to normal."

A suspect connected with this morning's "shooter" threat was apprehended and was a student at Santa Monica Community College, KTLA 5 reports. The 19 year old did not have any weapons on him.   

Updated 9:59 a.m.:

All Alhambra Unified School District schools are currently on lockdown, according to the AUSD superintendent's office. Alhambra Source received multiple tips from students and a security guard at Alhambra High School regarding the lockdown status.

A spokesperson from the district said the lockdown will soon be lifted since a suspect has been apprehended, but we are still waiting from confirmation from the Alhambra Police Department.

LA Times reports that an anonymous caller threatened a "shoot up" at 8 a.m.:

Officers have been deployed to all Monterey Park schools and 10 campuses have been locked down.

Monterey Park police Chief Jim Smith said no gunman has been seen.

He cautioned: "It's really sketchy information."

Brightwood Elementary School PTA, an Alhambra Unified School District school in Monterey Park, posted on Facebook about the safety of their students. "Parents: The school is in lock down mode so all students who had previous arrived at school are safe in their classroom with their homeroom teacher," the PTA said. "There is no instruction today, so make arrangements appropriately."

  1. Criminals say “boo” and America cowers under its bedsheets.
    It is shameful what this country has devolved to.
    A once great nation is on its knees.

    The criminal justice system is a corrupt joke.
    America has become a pathetic culture of fear.
    This nation is run by criminals who seek to violate the every right of the individual.

    But the criminal filth will ultimately fail.
    Families will stand and defend themselves tooth and nail.
    America will rise from the ashes.
