A 52-year-old man was being held without bail on suspicion of shooting at a traffic light in Westwood and having more than 10,000 rounds of ammunition in his van and a storage locker late last week, UCLA police said Monday. Gene Bush allegedly began firing at a traffic light at Broxton and Le Conte avenues shortly before midnight Thursday. Campus police responding to the shooting reported that they found Bush on the sidewalk, empty-handed but wearing a holster. They said that when they ordered him, at gunpoint, to get on the ground, he responded: "Not until everyone else gets here."
