>> Police say the UCLA shooter, who killed a professor before committing suicide, had a second victim and hoped to kill a third. Investigators say before Mainak Sarkar went to the Los Angeles campus and shot dead engineering professor William Klug, then killed himself, he killed a woman in her home in a Minnesota suburb.
00:00:21
Police say, Sarkar then drove 2,000 miles from Minnesota to California, and arrived on the UCLA campus Wednesday with a small arsenal.>> He went there to kill two faculty from UCLA. He was only able to locate one. Sarkar was heavily armed. He had two semi-automatic pistols. One that he used for the homicide and the other that was in his backpack.
00:00:44
He had multiple magazines of ammunition and multiple loose rounds of ammunition.>> On his body, police found a note which led them to Sarkar's residence in St. Paul, Minnesota. Inside that home, they found a kill list, which included the dead woman, Klug, and the other UCLA professor he couldn't find during his rampage.
00:01:04
Sarkar completed a PhD at UCLA in 2013 and had been living for several years in Minnesota. Police have not determined determined a motive, but Reuter's reporter Piya Sinha-Roy has been looking through a blog post in which he wrote about Professor Klug.>> He called that professor a very sick person and he said he urged every new student coming to UCLA to stay away from this guy.
00:01:28
And then he went on to say that this professor cleverly stole all my code and gave it to another student. And I think it's right now really the only lead we have into perhaps some of what motivated Sarkar to commit this crime.>> Reports of an active shooter brought a massive police response and a campus-wide lockdown.
00:01:49
UCLA students returned to campus Thursday, many still shaken by the events the day before.
