LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The gunman then allegedly opened fire on several cars and appeared to try to carjack two vehicles, the sources said. One of the carjackings occurred near the campus library and college police station.

The suspect then fled to the library, where he wounded by police and taken into custody, sources say.

The California Highway Patrol said it received reports of shots fired at 11:55 a.m. at the corner of 17th and Pearl streets on the south side of the Santa Monica College campus. Shootings occurred in "multiple locations," according to various sources.

Highway Patrol Officer Vince Ramirez told newspaper reporters that one suspect is in custody. Officers are trying to determine if there was a second shooter.

At around 1 p.m., six sheriffs just ran into a parking lot at 17th Street and Pico Boulevard with guns drawn. A car with bullet holes was visible in one college lot.

Coincidentally, U.S. President Barack Obama was in the area for a fundraiser. Sources said the shooting appears to be unrelated to his visit.

"We are aware of the incident and it is not impacting the visit. It's a local police matter at this point," Secret Service spokesman Edwin M. Donovan said.

A staff member at the college superintendent's office said the whole campus was on lockdown, including her office -- which she said was off site. "We've been told that there was a shooting," said the employee, Lety Kilian said.
