Agents from both agencies responded to the campus shooting soon after it was reported, UPI reports. 

Police confirmed two people – both male – were shot dead. One of the men shot himself.

Their ages and identities have not yet been released.

“There is a note. I don’t know if it’s a suicide note. I don’t know if it’s a confession. I don’t know what it is,” the LAPD chief told reporters.
