“This obviously was the work of a mad man,” Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown told reporters, according to CBS News.
The shooting took place just west of the University of California, Santa Barbara, and police were told the gunman was driving a black BMW, CBS News reported. Shortly thereafter, a person driving a similar vehicle was fatally shot by police.
The Daily Mail reported that Rodger’s son drives a black BMW and the tags on the vehicle involved in that shooting traced back to him.
According to Live Link, students identified Elliot Rodger as the shooter. The report included a creepy video of a man alleged to be Rodger describing a “day of retribution” for being rejected by girls.
With a diabolical laugh straight out of a Hollywood horror movie, the disturbing video will make your hair stand on end as the man calmly talks about how he will “slaughter” women at UCSB for rejecting him.
“After I have annihilated every single girl in the sorority house I will take to the streets of Isla Vista and slay every single person I see there,” he can be heard saying in the video.
WARNING: The video below is extremely disturbing.
