A shooting that left two men dead at UCLA on Wednesday and led to a massive response on the campus in a bustling part of Los Angeles was a murder-suicide, authorities said.
Police Chief Charlie Beck declared the campus safe about two hours after authorities received a 911 call. The shooting happened in a small
office in an engineering building called Boelter Hall, and a gun was found along with what might be a suicide note, he said. No names have been released. Hundreds of officers from multiple federal and local agencies swarmed the campus, which had been placed on lockdown. Teams in tactical gear looking for victims and suspects ran across campus, some with weapons drawn, and stormed into buildings. People emerged from buildings with their hands raised or behind their heads. The shooting occurred the week before final exams at UCLA, a major campus of the University of California system with about 43,000 students.
