Santa Monica Shooter Identified

Santa Monica police identified the shooter in Friday's rampage as John Zawahri, a man in his 20s who once attended the school and who they think was motivated by anger over his parents' divorce, according to the Los Angeles Times. Police said the first two victims were the suspects' father and brother, whose bodies were found in their burnt-down house. A witness said he saw Zawahri outside the burning building, describing him as looking like a "SWAT officer." Police are still unsure of why he decided to move on to the college, although he once was a student there. The first victim has been identified as Carlos Navarro Franco, 68, who was killed while the gunman shot indiscriminately at vehicles. Another victim is at a local hospital in “grave condition.”
