A shooting rampage perpetrated by a lone rage-filled gunman left four innocent people dead in the Santa Monica, Calif. area on June 7. Police are now revealing that two of his victims, who were found dead in a burning house, were actually his dad and brother. Read on.

Santa Monica College and its surrounding areas were in turmoil on June 7 as a man dressed in all black equipped with an assault rifle began opening fire on the campus, going on a deadly shooting spree that would eventually kill four people. However, what occurred at the suspect’s family house before is just as shocking and horrifying as the events that happened on campus.

Santa Monica Shooter Killed Father & Brother

The violence first started at the house, which is just a mile away from Santa Monica College. It reportedly was a domestic violence incident and two men — the suspect’s father and brother — were shot and killed by the suspect, two officials said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the case.

The suspect then set the home on fire, hijacked a car from a woman, and began heading towards the college. The shooter was reportedly firing indiscriminately at people and at cars and buildings. After killing two more on the college’s campus and injuring five others, the suspect, who is being described as 25 to 30 years old, was gunned down by police in a shootout.

Police reported that besides an assault rifle, the suspect was also carrying other weapons, including at least one handgun.

Santa Monica College Student: I Dodged Gunfire

A Santa Monica student, Joe Orcutt, described the carnage and horrific chaos to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY:

Just got shot at at Santa Monica College! Some white guy dressed in black with a bulletproof vest and rifle [was] randomly shooting at people. First shooting was a guy driving out of staff parking lot…and ended up driving across street and through a brick wall. [He] shot at me from about 30 feet away and I managed to jump out of the way in time, but heard the whoosh of a bullet go past. Cops ended up shooting [the suspect] in the library.

What a traumatizing experience. This sort of senseless violence can shake you to the core. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family’s of the victims, and with the entire Santa Monica College community.
