Maxximus 353 Posted May 24, 2014 Share Posted May 24, 2014 7 dead, including gunman, in shooting near Calif. college campus: Hollywood director suspects son A lawyer for a Hollywood director says he suspects his son carried out a mass shooting near the University of California, Santa Barbara campus late Friday that left seven people dead, including the gunman, and 11 injured in what authorities say was a “premeditated mass murder.” Authorities have not confirmed the identity of the gunman who was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head at the end of Friday’s rampage. But lawyer Alan Shifman, attorney for Peter Rodger, an assistant director on “The Hunger Games” film series, says that Rodger believes the shooter is his 22-year-old son Elliot Rodger, and that his family had called police weeks before about disturbing YouTube videos he had posted, his lawyer. [video=youtube;t-jCSZh2tMk] Police say a gunman driving a BMW near the university campus carried out the rampage. Authorities described the tragedy as "obviously the work of a mad man." Eleven people were injured, including one who has undergone surgery, following the shooting spree in the beachside community of Isla Vista, Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said. The gunman got into two gun battles before crashing into a parked car. Deputies found the lone suspect dead, but it wasn't immediately clear whether he was killed by gunfire or if he committed suicide, Brown said. Fox News~ confirmed that several of the dead were killed at a sorority house. Watch the above video. It's 20 minutes+ but an insight into the killers motivation. Let's profile this guy. I have a feeling he was a closet homosexual who was afraid of the consequences of coming out. He states in the video he always wanted a beautiful blonde sorority girl girlfriend, but if you ask me, he wanted to be that blonde sorority girl. This whole thing could have been prevented if he had a friend take him out to a gay bar. While it may sound like I'm joking, I'm totally not. Watch the video and you'll see exactly what I mean. This isn't rocket science. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
