LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Students and staff at California State University, Long Beach, were briefly urged to evacuate or take shelter on Tuesday due to an armed subject on campus, but the school quickly issued an "all clear" saying that there was no threat.

The initial alert had said police were "engaging the threat" on campus and urged students, faculty and staff to evacuate.
