Police are searching for a suspected gunman who is accused of wounding four people in a shooting spree across a Phoenix suburb.

Mesa Det. Esteban Flores says victims were injured Wednesday morning in shootings at three locations, including a restaurant and a hotel.

Flores says police are looking for a bald, white man in his 40s with a large tattoo on his neck. He was last seen wearing a gray shirt and either black pants or black shorts.

Mesa police closed off an area around the East Valley Institute of Technology on Wednesday morning.

Meanwhile, Mesa Community College issued an emergency alert, saying its campus was on lockdown and anyone already there should proceed to the safest location.
