Two men were killed in a murder-suicide on the University of California Los Angeles’ campus Wednesday morning, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed. In a press conference, LAPD chief Charlie Beck said that “there are no suspects outstanding and is no continuing threat to UCLA’s campus.”

Police swept Boelter Hall, a building in the school’s engineering complex where the shooting took place, to look for a shooter.

Students were advised to take shelter in a secure location and the entire campus was on lockdown. The UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center, located near the campus, was also on lockdown, NBC reported.

Federal agents from the ATF and FBI were on the scene, according to CNN, along with a SWAT team and dozens of emergency personnel. The network reported that the LAPD had placed the entire city on a tactical alert, shifting hundreds of officers to the area around the university’s Westwood campus.

Over 43,000 students are enrolled at UCLA.
