Elliot Rodger left a video titled, “Elliot Rodger Retribution,” before his deadly rampage.
Rodger said in the video he’s 22 and still a virgin. He also says he’s going to enter the hottest sorority house at UCSB, “And I will slaughter every single stuck up blonde slut.”
The AP reported:
A drive-by shooter went on a rampage near a Santa Barbara university campus that left seven people dead, including the attacker, and seven others wounded, authorities said Saturday.
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.
Deputies found him dead with a gunshot wound to the head, but it wasn’t immediately clear whether he was killed by gunfire or if he committed suicide, he said.
A semi-automatic handgun was recovered from the scene near the University of California, Santa Barbara.
Investigators know the gunman’s name, but Brown said he couldn’t release it pending notification of relatives.
So, are we looking at another leftist shooter?
