UCLA gunman killed estranged wife before campus attack

By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A former University of California, Los Angeles, graduate student shot dead his estranged wife at her Minnesota home before driving halfway across the country to UCLA, where he killed a professor and himself, authorities said on Friday. Gunman Mainak Sarkar's first victim was Ashley Hasti, a 31-year-old medical school student with a love of acting and stand-up comedy, her sister, Alex Hasti, said on Facebook on Friday, two days after Sarkar's attack sparked a two-hour lockdown of UCLA's sprawling urban campus. Sarkar fatally shot 39-year-old engineering professor William Klug and intended to kill a second professor, police said.
