The LA Times reports that people were being led out of their dorms and toward the Drake Stadium, while residents were being advised to stay indoors.

UCLA spokesman Brian Haas had reassured everyone it was just “precautionary”, but 30 minutes after the evacuation, a second noticed alerted that the “situation is still active”.

United and Real Madrid had been at UCLA on Wednesday as both start their US tours in Los Angeles, but neither were present at the time of the evacuation.
