22-year-old Law Thien Huynh was arrested outside the Coast Career Institute this afternoon after fatally shooting the instructor of his vocational class for security guard training.

According to witnesses, Huynh left the classroom then returned shortly afterward, either pushing or kicking open the classroom door before opening fire on his instructor. He then tossed the gun into the classroom and walked outside.

The shooting took place just after 4pm inside the school's campus at 1340 S. Hill. The instructor's name has not been released, but school officials say that the 44-year-old had worked at the school for three years.

Huyuh was smoking a cigarette outside the school when police arrived.
