Shooting at UCLA

2 confirmed dead--Campus is on lockdown
I'm currently listening to two sources and one is stating that it's a possible murder suicide.

Campus was on lockdown starting about 10:15am PDT. One of the UCLA Chi O's was interviewed on KTLA by phone when the the police/swat teams were going from room to room, evacuating the Engineering 4 building.

Per the Vice Chancellor: Lockdown is lifted. Classes are cancelled for today and will resume tomorrow. Finals will resume as planned and commencement will take place as scheduled

Very sad. It was reported that a student killed an engineering professor over a grade.
