The discovery of a suspicious-looking object in a medical school building at the UCSD campus prompted the evacuation of several hundred students and faculty members today while a bomb squad investigated.
The discovery at the La Jolla university campus was reported in the late morning, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.
Police cleared everyone out of eight buildings and called in an arson/explosives team to determine if the object might be anything hazardous, SDFRD spokesman Maurice Luque said.
Authorities also shut down a stretch of Gilman Drive, part of which extends onto the campus from the neighborhood to the south.
As of the 1 o'clock hour, it was still unclear if the object was hazardous.
