SACRAMENTO — American River College was placed on lockdown Wednesday night after a student reported seeing a bicyclist with a gun on the campus.
Los Rios Police and the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department responded around 7 p.m. to the science area of campus, but did not find the suspect.
The student told police the suspect tucked a gun into his waistband near bike racks on campus, and then got on a bike and rode towards Myrtle Avenue.
After a search of the area and no trace of the suspect, the campus lockdown was lifted.
Los Rios Police describe the suspects as a white male adult in his mid 20s with a skinny body type. Police say the man was wearing a white T-shirt, dark baggy pants and a tan hat.
The suspect was last seen riding a black BMX bicycle.
