(Newser) – Police believe they've found the car of the gunman who fatally shot his estranged wife in Minnesota then drove to Los Angeles to kill a UCLA professor and himself, the AP reports. Police Capt. Andrew Neiman said Friday a gray 2003 Nissan Sentra with Minnesota license plates is parked on a residential street on the west side of Los Angeles. They believe it belongs to gunman Mainak Sarkar. Neiman says the bomb squad plans to sweep the car as a precaution to make sure there are no explosives inside before other officers examine the vehicle further. (Read more Mainak Sarkar stories.)
