Two Killed in UCLA Campus Shooting Ruled Murder-Suicide

Two people were killed in a shooting ruled a murder-suicide on the UCLA campus Wednesday morning.

Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that the shooter was one of the two men killed.

The other who was killed, according to multiple reports, was UCLA associate professor William Klug. He worked in the department of mechanical and aerospace engineering.

The gunman was identified on Thursday as UCLA graduate student Mainak Sarkar

“There is no continuing threat to UCLA’s campus,” Beck said during a news conference on Wednesday before lifting the campus lockdown.

The shooting occurred in a small office in the Engineering IV building. A note was discovered at the scene, although its connection to the shooting is still unclear.

Local and federal law enforcement flooded to the campus this morning as the LAPD bomb squad and LAPD SWAT Team cleared the school. The LAPD also placed the city on a tactical alert.

The police investigation continues and the engineering building is still off limits to the public.

According to an LAPD spokesperson, a radio call came in from campus at 10:03 a.m. PST about the shooter. It was followed by a second 911 call about two victims possibly being down.

The UCLA campus was placed on lockdown around 10 a.m., and everyone was asked to shelter in place.

“Shooting at Engineering 4. Go to secure location and deny entry (lockdown) now,” a BruinAlert read.

According to the campus newspaper, the Daily Bruin, the shooter was described as a white male about 6 feet tall, who was wearing a black jacket and black pants.

University Police Lt. Richard Davis told the Daily Bruin that students reported hearing a loud noise followed by the sound of gun shells hitting the ground.

Rafi Sands, vice president of UCLA’s student government, told the Los Angeles Times that about 30 students used their belts to secure their classroom door after news of the shooter spread.
