Why don’t they ID the shooter yet?
This has gone from “1 dead” to “6 dead” in VERY little time.
Yes. I was startled by this, and I think there will be more developments and news.
It’s customary to notify next of kin before releasing the name to news organizations ... the police probably have to call someplace in Egypt or Saudi Arabia and the calls aren’t getting answered ....
According to neighbors, the family is Lebanese..he killed his father and brother before randoming killing people in different locations
Where was the good person with a gun to stop the shooter? Oh...this was California. That explains it.
” white man in his 20s, wearing cornrows in his hair and black overalls”
Some guy on CNN just said that this shows how lax gun laws in other states allowed this to happen in california.
Arabic and Muslim names are notoriously difficult to spell and pronounce. They are are probably learning how to do it right as to offend anyone..
They have to have time to scrub his web sites and facebook.
Yes; that or they’re frantically searching for a Tea Party connection.
Lebanese, I am sure it had nothign to do with religion...
The liberals will say that maybe he was just "gunning" for a "Section 8"
It is "pride month" you know...
I’m puzzled that the Los Angeles Police are handling this instead of the Santa Monica Police, or so it seems.
That's a bad sign right there.
Santa Monica Municipal Code:
No person shall shoot or discharge within the City any gun, pistol or other firearm, or any air-gun or pistol, or spring-gun or pistol without having first obtained a written permit from the Chief of Police. (Prior code § 3500)
Did the shooter have a permit? /s
Great post...all other mass shootings by dings in other states are promptly stopped by citizens with guns before they can do any harm... Like Ft. Hood for instance...
You're on the case Tex!
SMPD is taking the response credit in their news conference. Chief mentioned LAPD, ATF, FBI, and other local departments participating. 7 Now Dead. Another news conference before 8pm Pacific.

Nice to know I need a permit to shoot my BB gun.
