At least two are dead in a shooting on UCLA’s campus. The latest reports suggest the shooting may be a murder-suicide, but police have not confirmed yet.

L.A. Times reported: “Graduate student Jason La, 33, was sitting in Boelter Hall taking a test about 9:40 a.m. when an officer walked in and told the class to lock the door and barricade it.
About a minute later they were told to leave. Students began to move out of the building, then began running when an officer yelled at them to get away from the building, La said.”
One TV news host politicized the incident by calling for stronger gun restrictions. Other liberals chimed in.
PRAY FOR UCLA. PRAY FOR STRONGER GUN LAWS. PRAY FOR A LESS-VIOLENT SOCIETY.

All classes have been canceled for the day. Los Angeles police are stating that the campus will reopen after an investigation.
