Police are reporting that seven are dead, including the suspect, after a drive-by shooting at the Santa Barbara university campus.
Prior to this shooting, a student at UC Santa Barbara named Elliot Rodger uploaded this chilling video to YouTube giving his reasons for planning and executing such an atrocious act. In his psychotic ramblings he cites again and again that he is 22-years-old and has never even kissed a girl.
Police aren’t naming a suspect yet, but it’s easy to connect the dots.
The drive-by occurred Friday night at 9:30 PM. According to ABC News:
The gunman got into two gun battles with deputies during Friday night’s rampage in the beachside community of Isla Vista before crashing his black BMW into a parked car, Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said.
It’s unclear whether police shot the suspect or he committed suicide.
