Shooting Reported At UCLA Campus, Two Injured

At least two students have been shot and injured, following a shooting incident, at the UCLA campus, in Los Angeles, in the US state of California.

Police in Los Angeles say two people have been injured in a shooting incident at the UCLA campus, in Los Angeles, in the US state of California.

The campus was reportedly locked down this morning following reports of a “possible shooter” at Boelter Hall, part of the university’s school of maths and engineering. Students and staff received a text alert shortly before 10am local time, saying there had been a shooting and advising them to go to a secure location.

UCLA college newspaper The Daily Bruin reported that the shooter was a white male of around six foot, wearing a black jacket and black trousers, according to police. The university confirmed that there were two victims, whose conditions remain unknown.

Police had earlier confirmed that the two victims were injured, whilst conflicting reports suggest that the two may have been killed.

SWAT teams were active at the campus building, removing those from inside the locked down buildings, with the situation classified as an “active shooter”.
