Officers arrived on scene and located an adult male subject walking in the area and attempted to contact him. The subject ran into the lower-level parking lot of Alhambra High School, 150 E St. Prior to officer contact, the subject briefly entered an occupied building at the High School, before being detained by officers.

No students or staff were involved in the incident and the High School was briefly placed on a lockdown protocol until the incident was resolved.

There was no force used and no one was injured during the incident. The subject was identified as a 31-year-old male adult from Richmond, CA. Officers determined the subject was experiencing a mental health crisis and a Contra Costa County Consolidated Fire ambulance responded to the scene.
