[Updated at 1:15 p.m. PT, June 1, 2016, to add that the campus has been given the all-clear.]

A shooting this morning on the campus of UCLA left two men dead, with the campus placed on lockdown just after 10 a.m., the Los Angeles Times reports. The shooting is thought to have been a murder-suicide.

Following a lockdown, authorities gave the all-clear by 1 p.m., declaring the campus to be safe, according to media reports.

The shooting prompted a huge response from local and federal law enforcement officials. Police searched for a gunman, but UCLA Police Chief James Herren was quoted in the Times story saying: “It is certainly possible that one of the victims is the shooter.”

The school indicated that two people were found dead inside an engineering building.

The report adds: “The FBI and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were responding, the agencies said. The Los Angeles Police Department was placed on citywide tactical alert and sent hundreds of officers to the Westwood campus and surrounding neighborhoods around 10:30 a.m.”
