UCLA Gunman Planned to Kill Two Professors but Could Find Only One, Police Say
The gunman who killed a UCLA professor before committing suicide on campus Wednesday left behind a “kill list” and is suspected in the shooting death of a woman in Minnesota, authorities said.
Mainak Sarkar, 38, a former doctoral student and Minnesota resident, left a list at his home in that state that included the names of the woman, UCLA professor William Klug and a second professor who is safe, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said Thursday. Sarkar shot Klug multiple times in a small office in UCLA Engineering Building 4 before taking his own life, authorities said.
Sarkar had accused Klug of stealing his computer code and giving it to someone else, according to police.
Authorities declined to name the woman in Minnesota or a possible motive.
