(CNN) - At least three people were wounded and a suspect reportedly was in custody Friday after a shooting at Santa Monica College in Southern California, according to officials and media reports.
Authorities were "checking reports for an additional shooter," Sgt. Denise Joslin, a California Highway Patrol spokeswoman, told CNN.
The school was under lockdown.
The wounded were taken to the UCLA Medical Center, Dale Tate, a hospital spokeswoman, told CNN. Two of the victims were in critical condition and one was in serious condition, she said.
The gunman got off at least one shot inside the campus library, several witnesses told CNN affiliate KCAL/KCBS.
Calls began coming into authorities at about 11:55 a.m. (2:55 p.m. ET) that there was a man holding several weapons and firing into cars and a bus near the college, Joslin said.
President Barack Obama was in Santa Monica for a fundraiser just a 10-minute drive from where students have been locked down KCAL/KCBS reported.
