    Trapped inside with the gunman roaming the halls, Oikos University's Dean of Students says he's never been so scared.

    "I was evacuating people from other schools or other classes but I heard a lot of gunshots like five or six of them. I was trapped. I went into my room turned off the lights, locked the doors and took out the battery from my phone and laid down on the floor for 40 minutes," said Chongjin Kim.

    Thoughts of the Virginia Tech massacre from five years ago haunted him while he heard more shots being fired.

    "This is one of the scariest things that could happen in America, gunshots. I was so scared that everyone might be killed in cold blood," said Kim.

    Filmmakers were shooting Butler paddling out with competitive surfers Greg Long, Zach Wormhoudt and Peter Mel.

    A safety patrolman on a Jet Ski swooped in and picked up Butler.

    Wormhouldt said the actor was shaken up but not seriously injured. Butler was taken by ambulance to Stanford Medical Center for examination, and he was later released.

    "Of Men and Mavericks" is about Santa Cruz surfer Jay Moriarty, who conquered Mavericks as a teen but died in a free-diving accident in 2001 when he was 23.

    Butler's publicist Rupert Fowler didn't immediately respond to an email message sent Tuesday.

  • SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee called the power outages that left fans and players in the dark at Monday night's San Francisco 49ers game at Candlestick Park a "national embarrassment."

    The first outage began shortly before 5:30 p.m., when the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers was scheduled to begin. Service was restored about 20 minutes later and the game got under way, but the lights went out again at about 6:45 p.m. during the second quarter.

    The outage blackened the field and stands at Candlestick Park but no nearby homes were affected.

    Officials from the 49ers initially said Monday that the first outage was caused by a blown transformer, and an aerial video appears to show a flash near the stadium at the same time the lights went out. However, Joe Molica with PG&E said that they've determined that the cause of that outage was a power line coming down.
