Six People Killed in Isla Vista Rampage

Standard

In a Video Posted Online, Rodger Said his Attack Would be “Retribution” for Women Who had Rejected Him

22 year-old Elliot Rodger stabbed three male roommates to death at his apartment in Isla Vista, California, before going on a shooting rampage near a sorority, killing a further three people.  After a shootout with the police, he was found dead inside his car with a gunshot wound to the head, apparently self-inflicted.

Rodger, the son of a Hunger Games assistant director, had Asperger’s Syndrome and was in the care of several therapists.  He posted a terrifying video online two days ago, lamenting about women who reject his advances and being a virgin.  He said he planned on entering “the hottest sorority” and “slaughtering” the girls inside.  Police say the three people he shot to death near the sorority appear to be victims picked at random.
