Two People Dead in Shooting at UCLA Campus

A spokeswoman for the school confirmed two victims.


Update, June 1, 3:08 p.m.: Chief Charlie Beck confirmed in a press conference that the shooting is being investigated as a murder-suicide involving two males, and that authorities believe there is no longer a continuing threat on campus.

“There is no evidence to support outstanding suspects at this point, but out of an abundance of caution, we will continue our search,” Beck told reporters.

Two people were shot and killed on Wednesday morning at the University of California-Los Angeles campus, police and university officials have confirmed. The shooting prompted hundreds of law enforcement agents to swarm the campus and the nearby area of Los Angeles.

Chief James Herren told a press conference late Wednesday morning, local time, that it was possible that one of the deceased was the shooter.

Police first received reports of a shooting that occurred around 10 a.m. inside the school’s engineering building where classes were underway. The campus was quickly placed on lockdown, as a massive force of police officials and bomb squad experts swarmed the area and began clearing university buildings.
