San Bruno police completed their forensic investigation at about 2:30 this morning.

"My understanding is that the building will probably be closed for a couple of days. I don't know exactly what their plan is. I believe they're redirecting employees to other campuses," said San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini.

San Bruno has seen tragedy before.

Mayor Rico Medina was proud of the response by city emergency crews. "No one goes to work thinking that this is what will happen to them around their meal time. But it did. And I am thankful and appreciative of our public safety personal and law enforcement who took action and secured the scene," said Medina.
