California authorities say a gunman went on a nighttime rampage last night near the UC, Santa Barbara killing six people and wounding seven others. Sheriff deputies found him dead with a gunshot wound to the head.

The son of a major motion picture director is believed to be the lone gunman who went on a shooting rampage weeks after his family called police about a disturbing YouTube videos he had posted.

Santa Barbara Public Safety officials said the suspect methodically killed at three different locations. Officials said he targeted his apartment complex, then a UC Santa Barbara sorority and then a deli.

The narrative of the violence described by authorities shares striking similarities to a 137-page statement the suspect, Elliot Rodger, wrote in which he described plans to kill people.
