Los Angeles, June 2: Professor William Klug, identified as one of the victims in the murder-suicide shooting incident at University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) campus on Wednesday morning worked with a team to develop a computer-generated virtual heart, media reports said. Thirty-nine-year-old Klug was associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering who studied the interaction between mechanics and biology. He was married with two young children. According to multiple media reports, a UCLA student — reportedly upset about his grades — fatally shot Klug and then turned the gun on himself. While KTTV and the Los Angeles Daily News reported that the gunman may have been a graduate student, KNX radio, citing a law enforcement source, reported that the gunman was “despondent” about his grades. “I am absolutely devastated,” Alan Garfinkel, professor of integrative biology and physiology who worked with Klug to develop a computer-generated virtual heart, was quoted as saying by the Los Angeles Times. “You cannot ask for a nicer, gentler, sweeter and more supportive guy than William Klug,” Garfinkel added.
