The men initially began a verbal confrontation, and then started a fistfight.

Sacramento City College was locked down for almost four hours, from 4pm till 7.45pm. After security forces finished sweeping all the buildings, students and staff were allowed to go home, college spokesman Rick Brewer said, as cited by Reuters.

In the initial reports, police said the shooting happened across the street from the campus, but corrected that later and stated the incident had taken place near the baseball field on campus.
