The UCLA Campus Goes On Lockdown With Reports Of An Active Shooter

06.01.16 2 years ago

Law enforcement is on the scene at the University of California in Los Angeles following reports of an active shooter. The entire campus went on lockdown after social media postings indicated gunfire near Boelter Hall (Engineering Building #4). The official UCLA social media account is keeping folks updated as this story unfolds.

The UCLA website has been crashing due to high traffic during this incident, but for now, CNBC reports that two victims were killed with a gunman at large. CNN notes that armed officers are patrolling the campus of 40,000 students, and the urban setting of the campus presents more than the usual amount of difficulties in locating a suspect. The FBI has also responded to the scene where the search is ongoing, and law enforcement is now clearing buildings on a floor-by-floor basis.
