LOS ANGELES (WRIC|KRON|AP)— Two people are dead in an apparent murder-suicide at the University of California at Los Angeles.
The shooting was reported at around 10 a.m. at UCLA’s Boelter Hall, part of the Samueli School of Engineering & Applied Science, according to a tweet sent out by school officials.
When officers arrived, they found two adult males who were pronounced dead at the scene. The incident happened in a small office in the engineering building, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
