LOS ANGELES — Two men were shot and killed Wednesday at the University of California, Los Angeles, in what authorities believe was a murder-suicide.

At least three shots were fired in a small office in an engineering building, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said at a press conference. Authorities are still searching the building and recovered a gun at the scene.

“The victim was a professor, the shooter is unknown at this time,” LA City Councilman Paul Koretz told The Huffington Post. He said the motivation for the shooting remains unknown."

This is also coming up here and here

"Amid the confusion, some students and faculty members found themselves holed up in rooms without locks and doors that open outward so that they couldn’t be barricaded. Some engineering students quickly rigged a locking system, using belts, rope and furniture to keep themselves safe."
