EXPOSITION PARK, Calif. (KTLA) — Starting Monday, new safety measures created after a shooting on Halloween are going into effect at USC, restricting late-night access to the campus.

Students, staff and faculty members will now have to show a photo ID in order to enter the school between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Late-night guests will have to be registered online by a student or employee, and mus present a government-issued ID.

Guards will be staffed around-the-clock at residence halls to check identification and enforce the registration rules.

The new security measures mark the first time in USC’s modern history that the university is restricting access to pedestrians.

Back in October, four people were injured outside a Halloween party on the USC campus when an alleged gang member opened fire.

None of those involved were students. One of the victims was former Crenshaw High School football standout Geno Hall.

Six months earlier, two graduate students from China were fatally shot in a botched robbery that happened just blocks from campus.
