This afternoon, Pepperdine officials were notified the suspect involved in the incident on the Calabasas Campus was arrested yesterday by the Los Angeles Police Department and remains in custody. We are grateful for the thorough work by law enforcement and all who were involved in ensuring the safety of our community.
In addition, Pepperdine’s public safety team, in collaboration with local law enforcement, answered a report of a loud noise near the Drescher campus. After a search, law enforcement concluded it was most likely a car backfiring, and law enforcement has cleared the scene.
The Calabasas campus will reopen tomorrow, Friday, October 21, 2022.
Pepperdine is committed to student, faculty, and staff safety and well being, as well as to working with our law enforcement partners to protect the University community.
