SAN BRUNO, Calif. – Police on Wednesday were searching for three suspects who fled a college campus after a shooting that left an 18-year-old wounded.
The shooting happened at about 1 p.m. when two groups of teenage boys got into an argument in a parking lot at Skyline Community College in the San Francisco suburb of San Bruno, police Cmdr. Marc Catalano said.
Police do not believe any other students or faculty were targets in the shooting.
"Our initial investigation shows that there was an isolated incident between subjects involved in the conflict," Catalano said
The wounded, bleeding student who was not identified ran into the learning center about 1 p.m., said Leslie Shelton, director of the center.
"We were alerted there was an active shooter," Shelton said.
The student was shot in the buttocks, said Barbara Christensen, San Mateo Community College District director of community and government relations. No other injuries were reported.
Catalano said the three suspects, all about 18 years old, fled the campus in a "fluorescent" Ford Escort and had not been caught.
The wounded student was taken to the health center and then the hospital. His injuries were not life-threatening, Catalano said.
SWAT officers searched buildings for four hours after the campus was evacuated. The campus remained closed as police searched for evidence. Evening classes were canceled.
Christensen, who has worked for the district for 32 years, said she cannot remember any other shootings on campus.
The community college has about 10,000 students.
