Woman on UCLA Shooter’s ‘Kill List’ Found Dead in Minnesota

A woman whose name appeared on the UCLA shooter’s “kill list” has been found dead in Minnesota, a Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson told Variety.

The gunman, now identified as UCLA graduate student Mainak Sarkar, carried out a murder-suicide on the UCLA campus on Wednesday.

Before driving with two guns to Los Angeles from his home in Minnesota, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck told KTLA that Sarkar left a list that led authorities to a woman’s dead body. She was shot and killed in her home in a nearby Minnesota town.

Sarkar killed UCLA professor of mechanical engineering William Klug before shooting himself on Wednesday morning.

In addition to that woman’s name, the list also mentioned Klug and a fellow UCLA professor, who’s unharmed.

Beck said the Sarkar appeared to be taking vengeance on Klug, who he thought released computer code that could have potentially harmed him. He was a member of a computational biomechanics research group run by the professor.

The shooting occurred in a small office at the UCLA Engineering IV building. Classes resumed today, and the engineering department will be reopened on Monday as the police investigation continues.

Local and federal law enforcement flooded to the campus on Wednesday morning as the LAPD bomb squad and LAPD SWAT Team cleared the school. The LAPD also placed the city on a tactical alert. The UCLA campus was placed on lockdown around 10 a.m., which was lifted shortly after noon.
