Breaking News! Active Shooter on UCLA Campus… UPDATED

UCLA
Written by Onan Coca

At least two people have been shot on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles.



CNN senior law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes said locking down a large university in an urban area is a “monumental task.” UCLA’s engineering building is in the middle of a very densely populated part of Los Angeles.

From Fox News:

The condition of the victims was not immediately clear.

The campus was placed on lockdown just before 10 a.m. The LAPD was on a citywide tactical alert following shooting.

Students reported hearing a loud noise and gun shellings drop, UCPD Lt. Richard Davis said, according to The Daily Bruin.

Two people were “down” at UCLA and police were searching for someone wearing a black jacket and black pants, The Daily Bruin reported.

From NBC Los Angeles:
“At first we weren’t really sure it was real,” said student Landen Baldwin from his apartment a few blocks from campus. “It was s very quick turnaround time between the alert about police activity and the confirmation that there was a shooting. This one was very definitive within a couple minutes that the situation was as drastic as it was.”

UPDATE:

Police have resolved the situation and the school lockdown has been lifted.

Two people were killed in a murder-suicide on the UCLA campus Wednesday, prompting a campus-wide lockdown and forcing hundreds of terrified students to hide in buildings.

Suspects are no longer on the loose, and there is no continuing threat on campus, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said. He said the situation was contained, and a weapon was found.

UPDATE #2:

Authorities believe that they’ve uncovered the reason for Wednesday’s shooting at UCLA.
