The university’s Trojans Alert emergency texting service quickly put out a message urging students, faculty and employees to stay away from the Seeley G. Mudd building, which houses science and medical classrooms.
“Police-related incident in progress at Seely G. Mudd. No danger to USC or the community. Stay away from the area,” the text read.

USC has nearly 44,000 students enrolled.
A highly competitive school, it enrolled only about 16 percent of the more than 54,000 people who applied for its freshman class this year.
