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.

His name isn’t Arabic, but he looks either Middle-eastern or Mexican. He also looks like he has some masculinity issues that might have contributed to his breakdown.
I wonder if we will find out about his political leanings and religion. I am guessing the media/left will want and will subtly promote that he is a white conservative Christian, only to find out that none of that is true.
The odds are also good that he has been on some mind altering “chemical spanking” ADD or other drug.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess it was self-inflicted.
If only these murder suicide monsters would start with themselves.
The article says one semi-automatic pistol found in car. No assault weapon, no story. The media will move on.
How long before some of Bloomberg’s $50 million will be used to exploit this tragedy?
I’m guessing less than 24 hours.
I’ll be right back with his Youtube manifesto which he made yesterday....downright spooky.
The Blaze has the video that the guy left on You Tube. He is the son of the assistant director of the Hunger games movie. It appears that he was a student at UC Santa Barbara.
His mother is Moroccan; his father is white & British and works in Hollywood. Sounds like he was a rich loser with women
Holly crap..This is only the tip.If there is 1 there are many
Spoiled rich kid who has had everything handed to him.
Probably pegs the creep meter when he goes out with women.
Pegs my creep meter!
“Spoiled rich kid who has had everything handed to him.
Probably pegs the creep meter when he goes out with women.
Pegs my creep meter!”
Viewed the video and it registers very high on my creep meter also. The spoiled Hollywood kid also caused the needle on my GAYDAR to soar into the highest reached of the meter’s red zone.
Prayers up for the families and friends of the deceased and wounded.
if you watch his last youtube video, he says he never even got a kiss and he is 22? dang I was a geek but at least got kissed by then.
Indeed. The video is full of purely narcissistic, twisted sickness.
What is the prevalent religion in Morocco?
wow, so that means he met all the staff. I wonder how those lefties feel today?
He felt inferior because his car was only an entry-level BMW 2-series. All his friends had 7-series or Teslas.
Moroccan.... muslim.... confused and guilt ridden about his western decadence.... sudden jihad syndrome SJS
I can’t watch it. Too creepy.
” the crime of leading a better life “ ......
looks like Obama’s message to the youth is getting through.
Make a real pretty girl.
We need to ban those high-capacity assault pistols. And BMW’s.
Yah,but birthday kisses from your mother don't count.;-)

‘I will slaughter every single blonde s**t I see’: Seven people killed as son of Hunger Games assistant director carries out drive-by shooting ‘because women rebuffed his advances and he was a virgin at 22’
Don’t forget that we need to ban long lines at Starbucks. Elliott was really frustrated by that.
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.
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.
Too bad this video will give others ideas.
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.
ritalin + roid rage
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.
“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”

Lonely in Santa Barbara
Being lonely in a beautiful place like Santa Barbara is truly a horrible experience. As I’ve said many times, a beautiful environment can be the darkest hell if you have to experience it all alone, especially while having to watch other men walking around with their girlfriends. I wish girls were attracted to me. I don’t know why they aren’t.

Tagline Magnificent, supreme gentleman
Introduction My name is Elliot Rodger. I was born in the UK, but moved to the United States at the age of 5. I grew up in Calabasas and Woodland Hills, California. Currently, I am attending college in Santa Barbara, and while there I am staying the the town of Isla Vista. I have tried very hard to fit in with the social scene there, but I have ultimately been unable to do so. There are too many obnoxious people who have ruined my whole experience at that place.
I consider myself a sophisticated, polite gentleman, unlike most boys my age. My father is of British descent, and my mother is of Asian descent, so that makes me a Eurasian. I enjoy hiking, exercising, watching sunsets, traveling, cars, fashion, going to nice restaurants, and going to parties. I have traveled all over the world, ever since I was a child. So far, I have visited ten countries, including Great Britain, the United States, France, Spain, Greece, Germany, Mexico, Singapore, Malaysia, and Morocco.

He sure was messed up, nothing but pictures of himself on Facebook, and a lot of them.
How come he wasn’t hanging with the Kardashians?
It is horribly sad.
His stepmother posted on her FB page last year, a youtube video for Gun Control.

Berber and Arabic. Also French.
Oh, I’m sorry; you asked about religion.
Once we get the minimum wage up to a living wage, more people will apply for jobs at Starbucks, so long lines will decrease because of all the new employees.
“It appears that he was a student at UC Santa Barbara.”
No. He went to city college (looked down on by UC students). You need excellent grades for UC.
Another affluent family that didn’t have the decency to lock up their crazy son in order to protect others.
