According to officers, they responded to East Santa Clara Street and North 2nd Street on a weapons call. Someone reported a man brandished a gun. Arriving officers spotted the suspect who fled into the campus.
The report originated from the Spartan Complex, which houses the school's athletic facilities, kinesiology department and indoor aquatic center.
Those living on-campus for the summer told ABC7 News there is still so much concern, especially considering recent gun violence across the country.
"I'm thinking about all the things that have happened in recent weeks, and I think there have been numerous things we've been worried about in the area recently," Shm Almeda said.
Others explained they were able to remain calm knowing there were fewer people on-campus.
"I was expecting everyone to be safe," SJSU student, Abhaya Karmacharya said. "Because right now it's summer and there are no students around."
Almeda continued, "There's nowhere that feels safe because events like this have been happening everywhere and in every kind of place. So, it's either I think about it constantly or I just go about my life with this constant anxiety."
