BREAKING: Active shooting at UCLA, campus is on lockdown


From The Los Angeles Times:

Two people were killed in a shooting at UCLA on Wednesday morning, prompting a massive response from local and federal law enforcement, the LAPD confirmed.

The campus was placed on lockdown just after 10 a.m., according to the university.

People are being asked to shelter in place in an engineering building on the campus, the university said.

Helicopter news footage showed students walking out in a line with their hands above their head, as armed police officers scoured the campus.

UCLA took to Twitter to inform students…

…and the politicization has already begun and the (digital) ink is barely dry on this. One one hand this is done in poor taste, but on the other it absolutely serves the liberals right to be given a spoonful of their own medicine.

Updates will be added to this post as we find them.

Update 1:
The LA Times article was updated to reflect that the two people injured have died, this post was updated to reflect that.

Update 2:

It appears to be a murder suicide and the article linked at the top reflects this new information:

The shooting took place in a small office in the campus’ engineering complex, Beck said during a news conference around noon.

Beck confirmed that the shooter was one of the dead.

“The campus is now safe,” he said.

Authorities did not identify the dead and a motive was not immediately clear. Police confirmed a note was found at the scene but had not determined where it originated or if it was connected to the shooting.

A law enforcement source told the Los Angeles Times that,  based on the appearances of the two men, police believed that a professor was shot by someone young enough to be a student, who then turned the gun on himself.
