The suspect was identified by five law enforcement sources in Washington and Los Angeles as John Zawahri, in his 20s.

Other sources with knowledge of the investigation said detectives believe the shooting was sparked by a family dispute of some kind but emphasized that the investigation was still in its early stages.

His Full name is ‘John Samir Zawahri was purportedly born 06/08/1989.’

Same middle name like his bro and dad.

Another kid who’s had “mental health counseling” (instructions for a kill mission involving an ‘assault weapon’ to give Gov. Brown the excuse he needs to sign all the anti-gun anti-ammo Bills on his desk) that won’t be talked about.

I think the police better make sure that its not his brother Christopher who was the shooter..til this morning everyone thought Chris was the gunman..the neighbor of his mother said that Chris was the strange one, would howl loudly like a dog and she called him a “Useless human” never did anything, never left the house and would always be seen screaming at his Mom..she is out of the country right now and cannot be reached

The father's name sounds Muslim. So what's the deal with the shooter.

Earlier it was report that this scumbag's name was Christopher. So is it John? Chris? Christopher? Was it just a nick name? We can't count on the LA Times to report anything accurately. By the time they are done, this guy will be a radical fundamentalist Christian, a decedent of a founding father that owned slaves and has been a long time TEA party member.

Appears the blogs had it wrong when they thought the shooter was the older brother Chris based on, I believe, witness(es) descriptions that the shooter was between 25 to 35 years old.

Reportedly, the family is Jordanian and belongs to the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church.

The murdered father was a ham, N6KXL.

Members of the MSM and the IRS, NSA, and FBI were praying for a white middle class conservative killer... well, not ‘praying’ ... but you know...

I live in the area -- EVERY SINGLE LOCAL NEWSPAPER and local TV and radio News account yesterday began with:

The Shooter is a White Male in his 20s.

When the local papers and TV news kept delaying the identity of the gunman --saying his family lived out of the country, even though he was a White Male -- I knew he had to be anything BUT a White Male. Reminded me of the Zimmerman case when the media just couldn't let go of the "White Male" killer theme.

Samir is a name used by some Coptic Christians, who originate in the Middle East.

FWIW, “Samir” is a middle-eastern name much more common among middle-eastern Christians than among muslims.

I was thinking the same thing when I read his last name. A light went on in my head, because I remembered that Osama Bin Laden’s main lackey was named Zawahiri.

“That's just the problem with them, they're all related to each other.”

Yea, that's easy when you procreate with your first cousin. They have proven the wisdom of not inbreeding. With German Shepard's, you get hip displasia, with “human beings” you get something that has the IQ of a amoeba. Then you let it roam the earth with weapons of war. Not a good idea.

Just tried googling in search engine “John Samir Zawahiri” it is like it has been scrubbed, the first time I searched it was there, and then a few minutes later it was gone. How is it with you when you search?
