Attacker in UCLA murder-suicide fatally shot woman in Minnesota: police

A former University of California, Los Angeles, graduate student shot dead a woman at her home in Minnesota before he drove almost 2,000 miles (3,200 km) to his old school, killed a professor then took his own life, police said on Thursday. Mainak Sarkar, 38, had intended to kill a second professor in addition to killing engineering professor William Klug, 39, at a small office on the campus, prompting a two-hour long lockdown, police said. Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck told reporters on Thursday that a search of Sarkar’s St. Paul, Minnesota, home turned up a “kill list” that included the name of the woman found dead nearby, as well as the name of the other UCLA professor, who was not harmed.
