Police in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, say they found a dead woman when Los Angeles police asked them to conduct a welfare check at a local address in connection with the UCLA murder-suicide investigation.

A Brooklyn Park police statement says officers responded early Thursday and found the woman dead of an apparent gunshot wound.

The statement says early indications are that the woman's shooting happened before the UCLA shooting, which occurred at midmorning Wednesday.

Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck tells KTLA-TV that a "kill list" was found in the Minnesota home of UCLA shooter Mainak Sarkar.

The list contained the names of UCLA engineering professor Bill Klug, who was slain in the murder-suicide, another UCLA professor, and the Minnesota woman. Beck says the other UCLA professor is OK.
