Update Regarding Wednesday’s Shelter in Place

On Wednesday, October 5th, the AVC Lancaster campus was issued a Shelter in Place notice due to an armed individual just northwest of campus. The notice lasted approximately two hours. College officials thank all of the students and staff for their cooperation and assistance.

Tragically, LASD Sergeant Steve C. Owen of the Lancaster station was killed in the line of duty in the off-campus incident. AVC expresses our deepest sympathies to the family, friends and fellow deputies of Sergeant Owen. College board members will lead a moment of silence for Sergeant Owen at Monday’s board meeting, Monday, Oct 10 at 6:30 p.m. in the Board Room (SSV 151).

As of this morning, Avenue J-8 and all AVC parking lots have reopened.
