Two dead in California campus shooting Wednesday
LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Police Chief says the UCLA shooting was a murder-suicide and the campus is now safe.
A LAPD statement says the two people who are dead were both male, but provides no other identification.
Police reported an hour after the shooting that two people were shot and had died. In an interview with L.A. TV station KABC, a police spokesperson asked people in the L.A. area to move out of the way of a large-scale response to the campus.
