The campus Web site posted the following “Emergency Notification” for students and faculty: “We have had a shooting on campus and are now in lockdown. Please shelter in place, away from windows, with doors shut until further notice. We are sending an emergency text message to all students.”

“We are trying to get everyone safe on campus,” wrote Lori Adrian, Vice President of Student Services, in a statement to The Skyline View.

Skyline College officials ordered a lockdown this afternoon after a student was shot in the buttocks in a parking lot there, officials told the San Francisco Chronicle. The wounded student is being treated in a nearby hospital.

The shooting happened in the parking lot campus in San Bruno, near the community college’s science building, the paper reported.

The shooter was believed to be at large on the campus Wednesday afternoon. San Bruno police were systematically clearing the school’s classrooms this afternoon, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
