A gunman in a black BMW opened fire on crowds of people Friday night in a Southern California seaside town near UC Santa Barbara, killing six people and injuring seven others in what investigators described as a "mass murder" rampage.

The gunman was later involved in at least one shootout with sheriff's deputies and died of a gunshot wound to the head, Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said at a Saturday morning news conference. He could not confirm whether the gunshot was self-inflicted.

Seven victims were hospitalized and at least one of them had undergone surgery for life-threatening injuries, Brown said. Details regarding the other victims' conditions were not immediately available.

He felt inferior because his car was only an entry-level BMW 2-series. All his friends had 7-series or Teslas.

We need to ban those high-capacity assault pistols. And BMW’s.

Seven people killed as son of Hunger Games assistant director carries out drive-by shooting ‘

Rodger is believed to be the son of The Hunger Games assistant director Peter Rodger

“The shooter” reportedly fled the crime scene in a vehicle after getting in a shootout with sheriff’s deputies. Deputies gave chase in their vehicles until the gunman’s car slammed into one parked on the side of the side of an unknown street.

When deputies approached the vehicle they found “the shooter” dead in the driver’s seat with a gunshot wound to the head, reports the Washington Post.

Witnesses also described seeing a black BMW, allegedly belonging to Elliot, speeding through the streets, firing bullets at people and various targets in the small university community.

Multiple witnesses say that they saw two people inside of the suspect’s BMW. However, Bill would neither confirm nor deny whether there was a passenger in the car with the shooter.

Don’t forget that we need to ban long lines at Starbucks. Elliott was really frustrated by that.

The mass killing comes about 13 years after a former UC Santa Barbara student drove his car through a crowd of people in Isla Vista, killing four. David Attias was convicted on four counts of second-degree murder and sentenced to a state mental hospital.

People in Isla Vista must be really rude.

California drive-by shooting: ‘Son of Hunger Games assistant director’ Elliot Rodger suspected of killing six

Elliot Rodger, named locally as the son of the assistant director of the Hunger Games films, is suspected of shooting dead six people in a rage against being rejected by women

The gunman, named locally as Elliot Rodger, was identified as the 22-year-old son of Peter Rodger, an assistant director on the blockbuster Hunger Games film series.

His step-mother was Soumaya Akaaboune, an actress who appeared in The Green Zone and was a star a French language version of The Real Housewives reality television franchise. He appeared with her and his father on the red carpet for The Hunger Games premiere in 2012.

http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02921/HOLD_housewives_2921193c.jpg

After detailing how “girls have never been attracted to me,” he threatened to “slaughter” members of a college sorority house – a group for female students - and then “take to the streets of Isla Vista and slay every single person I see there.”

He said: ‘I’m 22 years old and I’m still a virgin. I’ve never even kissed a girl,’ he says in the video.

He delivered a a tirade about his ‘”loneliness, rejection, and unfulfilled desires” and blames women for preferring “obnoxious brutes” to him, ‘the supreme gentlemen”.

“Indeed. The video is full of purely narcissistic, twisted sickness.”

I got the same thing out of the video. There was no political or religious content what so ever. He blamed women for his own shortcomings.

No assault weapon, no story. The media will move on.

The fact this tragic shooting incident occurred on a Friday evening leading into the three day Memorial Day weekend guarantees this story won't have legs.

For five years, Oblacka and his minions have been sowing messages of hate and confrontation, and stirring the pot anyway they can. It's sobering to consider that we have a political wing (demsoc) that are actively engaged in incitement to riot and criminal activity. So in a nutshell, your comment nailed it.

You may not recall but in the late 60s the anarchists from UCSB burned the Isla Vista branch of the Bank of America. Sounds like UCSB presents a real public nuisance and ought to be closed for everyone’s safety.

Gee.

“Gun laws in California regulate the sale, possession, and use of firearms and ammunition in the state of California in the United States.

The gun laws of California are some of the most retrictive in the United States. A Handgun Safety Certificate, obtained by passing a written test, is required for handgun purchases, although there are exemptions to this requirement. (This requirement was extended to long guns on January 1st, 2014. Handguns sold by dealers must be “California legal” by being listed on the state’s roster of handguns certified for sale. Private sales of firearms must be done through a licensed dealer. All firearm sales are recorded by the state, and have a ten-day waiting period. Unlike most other states, California has no provision in its state constitution that explicitly guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms”
