Shooting Reported At UCLA, Campus On Lockdown


A shooting was reported on UCLA’s campus this morning right before 10 a.m. PST in the Engineering 4 building. Students received this alert message and have been advised to stay put.

Not much is known at this point, but police are at the scene now investigating reports of an active shooter. LA Times is reporting two people injured, but nothing has been confirmed.

From LA Times:

Helicopter news footage showed students walking out in a line with their hands above their head, as armed police officers scoured the campus. Mehwish Khan, a 21-year-old psychobiology student, took cover in the library along with several other students. “The whole campus just started running and I started running too,” she told a reporter over her cell phone. “Everyone was very confused. We got in a building, and no one knew what was going on,” she said.

We’ll continue to update this article as more information becomes available.

UPDATE 12:58 CST: CNN and multiple other sources are reporting that two people have been shot.

UPDATE 2:29 PM CST: The campus lockdown has been lifted and LAPD are reporting that the gunman is dead after an apparent murder-suicide. “The campus is now safe,” LAPD Chief Charlie Beck told reporters in a news conference shortly after noon.
