The deadly shooting comes after the University of California in Berkeley was placed on a shelter in place order on Thursday as students are told to "move away from doors and windows."

The emergency alert was issued as the campus police were investigating a credible campus-wide threat, the UC Police Department said.

"Please go inside and move away from doors and windows. If you are not on campus, please stay away from the area," UCPD said.

UCPD quickly dunked active shooter reports on social media, saying officials are looking for a person "who may want to harm specific individuals."
