The shooting that triggered a lockdown on the University of California at Los Angeles campus Wednesday morning was a homicide followed by a suicide, according to Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck. The gun used in the shooting was found at the scene, he said.
"The campus is now safe," Chief Beck told reporters at 12:10 p.m., just over two hours after the shooting. There are "no suspects outstanding."
UCLA police chief Jim Herren told reporters at 11:40 a.m. that there was an "active search to ensure there are no other victims" and they are "still searching to see if there is a suspect that may be in the area."
Chief Herren said it was possible it was a murder-suicide and that the shooter is dead, not on the loose.
