Two people were dead Wednesday after a shooting in an engineering lab at UCLA, Los Angeles police said.
A campus-wide lockdown was put in place, according to a tweet from the UCLA newsroom. A nearby hospital and three elementary schools were also on lockdown.
UCLA, which has a quarter system for its academic calendar, is currently in finals week. Bahjat Alirani, a senior, told NBC News he was in the engineering building for an exam when he ran into a police officer.
“He was pointing a big gun and said for everyone to run and get out of the area,” Alirani said.
Both the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were responding to the incident at the request of the LAPD, but officials told NBC News they had no independent information yet.
