Immediately after the deadly shooting at UCLA yesterday, media outlets and the school’s newspaper described the suspect as a “six foot tall white male.”
Shooter is described as a white male about 6 feet tall, according to sources.

But now, the real identity of the shooter has been revealed, which totally destroys the liberal media’s narrative. They were 100% wrong!
The shooter’s name is Mainak Sarkar and he was a former Ph.D student. A graduate of the India Institute of Technology with a Master’s degree from Stanford, had reportedly accused Professor Klug of stealing his computer code and had been angry with the married father of two for weeks prior to the shooting:
The gunman who shot and killed a UCLA professor Wednesday has been identified as Mainak Sarkar, a former doctoral student who had accused the victim of stealing his computer code and giving it to someone else, according to Los Angeles police.
Sarkar, 38, took his own life after killing William Klug, 39, in a small office in UCLA Engineering Building 4, sources confirmed.
Sarkar, a resident of Minnesota, appears also to have killed a woman in a small town in that state, officials said. The woman’s name was found on a “kill list” in Sarkar’s residence, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said. A second UCLA professor’s name was on that list as well, along with Klug’s name.
“There is no good reason for this,” Beck said.
Klug was an associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and had been the target of Sarkar’s anger on social media for months. On March 10, Sarkar called the professor a “very sick person” who should not be trusted.
“William Klug, UCLA professor is not the kind of person when you think of a professor. He is a very sick person. I urge every new student coming to UCLA to stay away from this guy,” Sarkar wrote. “He made me really sick. Your enemy is my enemy. But your friend can do a lot more harm. Be careful about whom you trust.”

CBS reports that the man responsible for the murder-suicide at UCLA used a 9mm handgun, not a shotgun as CNN said. https://t.co/8goHp4GXle

Mainak Sarkar, native-born American Tea Partier. Or something.

This is what happens when liberals are quick to blame everything on conservatives while calling them racist. The media made an immediate assumption that the shooter had to be white. That is a clear form of discrimination, as there were no facts yet released about who the shooter was.
The shooting at UCLA is a senseless tragedy. Let us pray for those affected and killed.
