Heavily armed SWAT teams searched the school just after 9:30 a.m. after a “man with a gun” was reported to have run inside. Police say their initial reports indicated the man had a dispute with a CCP student outside the school before running inside.

Two hours after the search began, a 17-year-old man was taken into custody at an adjoining school and was brought to Central detectives to be questioned. Police say he did not resist, was not carrying a weapon and is not charged with any crime.
