A man and woman died on UC Irvine’s campus Tuesday, Dec. 13 in an apparent murder-suicide, Irvine Police said.
The two adults, who were related to one another, were found around 4 p.m. at Social Science Plaza B, according to Irvine Police spokesperson Sgt. Karie Davies. Neither of them was a current student at UCI, although the man had been enrolled at the university in 2019.
No weapons were located at the scene, and police are not seeking a suspect, Davies said.
Davies could not specify the relation but said the pair were not husband and wife and resided in the same Irvine residence prior to their deaths. Their ages were not immediately available, but both were adults, Davies said; their names were not being released as of Tuesday evening.
It was not immediately apparent whether witnesses saw an altercation break out between the two, Davies said.
The man had previously been known to Irvine Police, but Davies could not specify what the calls were for.
UCI Chancellor Howard Gillman released a statement Tuesday evening regarding the incident.
“We are still gathering information about who the victims are and exactly what happened, but law enforcement has informed us that there is no ongoing danger to our community,” the statement said.
UCI’s fall quarter ended on Dec. 9, according to the school’s calendar.
