Update: Police Activity

The University Police Department at San Jose State University has re-opened the Boccardo Business Complex after completing a floor-by-floor search of the building in response to a report of a gunman.

The incident began at approximately 3 p.m. today, when a student entering BBC overheard a conversation between several students leaving BBC.

The students had been discussing the possibility of a gunman in the building. The student who overheard the conversation immediately called UPD.

BBC (a classroom building for students) and the adjoining Business Tower (an office building for business faculty and staff) were evacuated.

UPD conducted a floor-by-floor search of BBC and found no evidence of a gunman, nor any other witnesses who had seen a gunman.

The buildings were re-opened at 4:30 p.m. During the incident, a portion of 10th Street was closed to vehicular traffic. The street has since been re-opened.

SJSU encourages all members of the university community to report safety concerns. Students, faculty and staff can call 9-1-1 or contact UPD directly at 408-924-2222.
