RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California community college campus is being cleared and classes have been canceled for the day after someone called 911 suspecting that a young man was carrying a backpack with an explosive device inside.
San Bernardino County sheriff's Cpl. Randy Naquin tells the Riverside Press-Enterprise that the call from Chaffey College in Rancho Cucamonga came in at about 1 p.m. Thursday.
The campus was locked down as deputies searched for the man and the backpack, but nothing had been discovered some two hours later.
Students and staff are being told they can leave campus after their areas are cleared.
Afternoon and evening classes have been canceled.
