CCSF's library has reopened after a suspect reportedly brandished a gun in the lobby Tuesday morning.

UPDATE: Police identify suspects involved in gun-brandishing at CCSF

UPDATE: 1:39 P.M.:

City College of San Francisco police have identified two suspects involved in the brandishing of a gun on campus earlier Tuesday, the San Francisco Examiner has learned.

The suspects, at least one of whom is believed to be a student at CCSF, allegedly became involved in an altercation with another student shortly after 11 a.m. inside the school’s Louise & Claude Rosenberg, Jr. Library, located at 50 Phelan Ave., said CCSF spokesman Jeff Hamilton.

One of the suspects brandished a gun, but no shots were fired and no injuries were reported, Hamilton said. The suspects then fled the scene.

Campus police responded within a minute of the incident, and San Francisco police arrived at the school within five minutes. Authorities evacuated the library for less than an hour while the building was cleared.

“Once the campus police determined that it was not an active shooter and these were people known to each other, the P.A. system in the library was utilized to evacuate the building,” Hamilton said. “We did not do a campus-wide alert because we knew the scope of the problem was in one building.”

Hamilton said that while reports of a gun on campus are not common, the school is located in a major metropolitan city.

“Certainly it’s not a typical situation, but we are an urban campus,” he said.

UPDATE 11:49 A.M.:

Police are investigating an altercation among two students and a third person inside City College of San Francisco’s Ocean Avenue campus library late Tuesday morning in which one suspect allegedly brandished a gun, school officials confirmed.

The incident occurred shortly after 11 a.m. inside the school’s Louise & Claude Rosenberg, Jr. Library, located at 50 Phelan Ave., said CCSF spokesman Jeff Hamilton.

No shots were fired and no injuries were reported, Hamilton said.

The victim remained at the scene and spoke with San Francisco police as well as campus police. Both suspects, at least one of whom is believed to be a student, fled the scene.

“There was no active shooter, no shots fired, this is not random,” Hamilton emphasized.

The library was evacuated and cleared by police, and has since reopened.
