William Klug was in an office inside Boelter Hall on the Westwood campus before 10 a.m. when he was reportedly shot and killed by an unidentified student who then took his own life, sources told NBC4.
A gun and a note were found near the bodies, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said during an afternoon press conference.
“The campus remains in a state of sorrow over the tragic shooting and loss of two members of the Bruin community this morning,” executive vice chancellor and provost Scott L. Waugh said at a press conference Wednesday evening. “We’re trying to restore the campus to order as quickly as possible.”
