Cosumnes River College put on lockdown after threat against campus

The Los Rios Community College District reported that Cosumnes River College in Sacramento was placed on lockdown for a while on Monday following a threat of violence against the campus.

Multiple law enforcement organizations, including the Sacramento Police Department, Elk Grove Police Department, Rancho Cordova Police Department, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, and California Highway Patrol, were on campus helping the Los Rios Police Department, according to KCRA 3.

According to Gabe Ross of the Los Rios Community College District, “in a situation where we know the suspect, like today, they’re going building by building looking for that suspect and identifying and signs the person was there.” In this instance, they were unable to locate any proof that the individual was present and, in fact, had some proof that he may have left campus.

The lockdown appeared to be over when students were observed leaving the school just before one o’clock.

Ross stated that the police investigation is still underway and that she was unable to comment on whether the student who made the threat had been found.

On-campus students gave accounts of what transpired inside classes during the lockdown.

Quien Nguyen, who was in his math class when the incident started, said, “Of course, we locked the doors and we wanted to make sure all the hallways were clear of students.” We purchased a desk and placed it up against the window directly across from the door so that, in the event of an emergency, we would have more protection.

During the lockdown, Lisa Stade was in the library working on an essay for her history class.

They warned us to remain away from windows, so Stade returned to his study area. “I had no idea if I would survive or not.”

Campus administrators claim that there is no threat.

The final Monday classes are being held online.
