The UC Berkeley police investigation into the fatal shooting last month of Christopher Travis has not yet reached any conclusions, according to Lt. Alex Yao, the department’s spokesman. The investigation is continuing and Yao said he did not know when it would be concluded.
The fatal shooting of UC Berkeley student Christopher Travis was likely to have been “suicide by police”, according to Richard Lyons, dean of the Haas School of Business, where the shooting took place on November 15.
Update, 5:34 pm: More details continue to emerge in the case. According to information released by UC Berkeley at 5:23 pm, UCPD Captain Margo Bennett said that four officers, not three as previously reported, entered the school’s computer lab where the suspect Christopher Travis had gone on Tuesday. Nine people were in the room at the time, in addition to Travis, she said. The Alameda County coroner’s office conducted an autopsy this morning on Travis and a report will be released at a later time. Since the shooting, at least 20 witnesses have been interviewed, she said, and video surveillance footage has been reviewed. The Associated Press reports that Bill Travis, the suspect’s father, sobbed during a brief telephone interview with from his home in Lodi. He said he learned his son had been shot Tuesday night and didn’t want to make any further comment.

At about 9.15 p.m. on Thursday night, an empty Bauer’s bus which had been left by its driver parked on Piedmont Avenue across the street from UC Berkeley, rolled across the street’s two lanes and down an embankment coming to a stop in front of a Haas School of Business building. The bus did not collide with either cars or pedestrians and nobody was injured.
There’s so much buzz around the fledgling food business launched last year by two former UC Berkeley students, you’d think they were pumping out premium honey.
If you are interested in innovation and have $1,500 to spare, the place to be the next few days will be at a conference at the Haas School of Business.
