"I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things." Isaiah 45:7
No. Evil came through Satan. God created everything perfectly. After creating everything he found it was good. He created Lucifer also so perfectly without any flaw.When Lucifer rebelled against God, He fell down from his position and became evil. He began to do evil things and enticed human beings and made them also evil.Jesus is the full expression of God, who did the good things only during his earthly life.Evil is keep increasing and will reach its peak during the reign of Antichrist. We are called to taste and see that the Lord is good. All good things originates from Him but he may cause the evil to happen.
Here's an answer that might appeal to both those who are believers and those who are not:
A God would allow for all possibilities of all things across all spectrums, and thus all forms of good or evil are possible and likely, and so human choice could affect or determine outcomes.
If there were no God, science postulates that all possibilities of space, time, matter, anti-matter, energy, dark energy, etc. are possible and likely, and thus, once again, all forms of good or evil are possible and likely, and so human choice could affect or determine outcomes.
Evil is the lack of Good. Evil is when good men do nothing.
everything is created by God, it is a gift from Him. but what we have become is a product of our thought, actions and decisions. and that what happen to Lucifer. he is created by God but he create him self an evil, out of jealousy....
For a purpose, I believe God created things that have the potential to be evil.
[2 Nephi 2:11-16] For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things. If not so...righteousness could not be brought to pass, neither wickedness, neither holiness nor misery, neither good nor bad. Wherefore, all things must needs be a compound in one; wherefore, if it should be one body it must needs remain as dead, having no life neither death, nor corruption nor incorruption, happiness not misery, neither sense or insensibility.
Wherefore, it must needs have been created for a thing of naught; wherefore there would nave been no purpose in the end of its creation. Wherefore, this thing must needs destroy the wisdom of God and his eternal purposes, and also the power, and the mercy, and the justice of God.
And if ye shall say there is no law, ye shall also say there is no sin. If ye shall say there is no sin, ye shall also say there be no righteousness. And if there be no righteousness nor happiness there be no punishment nor misery. And if these things are not there is no God. And if there is no God we are not, neither the earth; for there could have been no creation of things, neither to act nor to be acted upon; wherefore, all things must have vanished away.
And now...I speak unto you these things for your profit and learning; for there is a God, and he hath created all things, both the heavens and the earth, and all things that in them are, both things to act and things to be acted upon.
And to bring about his eternal purposes in the end of man, after he had created our first parents, and the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and in fine, all things which are created, it must needs be that there was an opposition; even the forbidden fruit in opposition to the tree of life; the one being sweet and the other bitter. Wherefore, the Lord God gave unto man that he should act for himself. Wherefore, man could not act for himself save it should be that he was enticed by the one or the other."
All of us have been given moral agency which is the ability to choose and act for our self. With agency, we are "free to choose liberty and eternal life, through the great Mediator of all men, or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil" [2 Nephi 2:27]. Evil is when someone chooses not to follow God's plan which includes all of the laws, ordinances and doctrines of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. See also Alma 5:40-41
Only in so far as there is nothing outside of God. Evil is a lesser form of Light. Seen from the Highest standpoint, there is nothing outside of Spirit or God. God is the only Doer.

Did God create evil? Did humans create evil through original sin? Did Satan create evil? Where does it come from?Or is "good" and "evil" just relative, and non-existent in an objective sense?
