LAPD Capt. Andy Neiman said he was not aware of the total number of victims or their conditions. It was not clear if UCLA was citing campus police or LAPD for the report of two dead.
Officials put the campus on lockdown as authorities investigate the incident at Boelter Hall, a science and engineering building. Large groups of police with long guns patrolled the streets of the campus of more than 40,000 students. The lockdown has since been lifted.
SWAT officers and dozens of squad cars filled the area as police tried to clear campus buildings floor by floor. Agents from the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives also were headed to the scene.
Los Angeles police issued a citywide tactical alert, meaning officers on duty will be extended. UCLA’s final exams are scheduled for next week, with graduation set for Friday.
