A Los Angeles Police Department spokesman said only that an investigation was underway, but other details were not immediately available.

The campus is at 13645 Riverside Drive.

About 8:30 a.m., the California Highway Patrol reported that "police activity'' related to an LAPD investigation had prompting the closure of the Woodman Avenue offramps from the Ventura (101) Freeway, which would limit
traffic from accessing the neighborhood where the school is located.
