An entire California community is in mourning after a gunman went on a rampage to “avenge” his 22 years of virginity and shame.
Police say Elliot Rodger stabbed three people to death at his apartment complex in Santa Barbara before hopping into his BMW to conduct drive-by shootings at victims he deemed to be attractive.
Now, a new finding has uncovered that Rodger is the son of Elliot Rodger, an assistant director for The Hunger Games films.
At least three innocent UCSB students lost their lives in the killing spree that stretched for several blocks, including 20-year-old Christopher Ross Michaels-Martinez, who was at a deli when gunfire sprayed the crowd.
Elliot Rodger is suspected of stabbing three people to death at his apartment before killing three other people in shootings across Isla Vista on Friday. Rodger was later involved in a shootout with sheriff’s deputies and died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Away from the vigil, a group of fraternity brothers wept as they dropped off flowers outside the Alpha Phi sorority house, where two other UCSB students – Katherine Cooper, 22, and Veronika Weiss, 19 – were shot to death.
“Isla Vista has experienced a tragic loss and the community is shaken,” organizers posted on Facebook. “This is a time to reflect on, honor, and celebrate the lives of those we have lost.”
Before he died, Rodger uploaded an audio manifesto of sorts, where he foreshadowed his dark deeds in a twisted, cry for help that went unanswered.
