Campus security officer Elijah Abeyta said the incident occurred around 6:30 pm when a male suspect allegedly pointed a gun at the students in front of the main library.

The incident triggered a campus lockdown as authorities searched for the alleged gunman.

Abeyta said it’s unclear as to why the two student-athletes were targeted. He said no shots were fired but the suspect fled in a vehicle with two other occupants, a male and a female.

Campus security cameras captured at least a partial view of the incident and authorities are reviewing the footage for more clues. The lockdown was lifted around 7:30 p.m.

Abeya said officials would disclose more information about the incident Tuesday.
