According to Los Angeles Police Department Officer Liliana Preciado, the vehicle was located about 1:50 p.m. and a bomb squad was brought on scene to examine the car.
Beck said at the time that he believes the car does not present any danger, but police on Friday were acting with a large amount of caution.
Los Angeles Police Chief Beck said Sarkar drove to Los Angeles from Minnesota with two guns and killed Professor Klug before killing himself. Beck said it appears mental issues were a factor and it appears Sarkar thought Professor Klug released intellectual property that harmed Sarkar.
Police in Brooklyn Park confirmed that officers responded to the 2400 Block of Pearson Parkway at 12:34 a.m. Thursday to perform a welfare check on a request from LAPD related to the recent shooting investigation on the UCLA campus.
Officers found 31-year-old Ashley Hasti, a Brooklyn Park resident, dead. A report from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office states Ashley Hasti, the estranged wife of UCLA shooter Mainak Sarak, died from multiple gunshot wounds. Early indications are the shooting occurred prior to the UCLA incident. Brooklyn Park Police believe Sarkar got into the home by breaking a window.
