Santa Monica College was placed on lockdown Friday after reports that a suspect fired a gun inside a campus building just before noon.

There are several victims, including the shooter, confirmed Santa Monica police Sgt. Rudy Flores to the Associated Press.

Flores also said that the police fielded several reports of a man on a street corner shooting at vehicles.

President Barack Obama is about three miles away from the scene at a Democratic Party fundraiser. He was scheduled to deliver remarks around 12:30 p.m.
