Sunday, 10:12 a.m.: Details continue to emerge from the weekend's shooting rampage in California. The revelation of a 141-page manifesto called "My Twisted World" added greater depth to saga surrounding suspect Elliot Rodger.
Also, new information about the attack came to light including word that the first three victims (all male) in the rampage were stabbed to death by Rodger. Then Rodger took off in his car and headed to a sorority mentioned in the manifesto as the "hottest" on campus. After no one answered the door, he shot three women nearby, killing two of them and fled in his car. Rodger next shot another student to death at a deli before driving off, ramming cars and firing at pedestrians. He was shot in the hip during two separate gun battles with police.
Deputies found three semi-automatic handguns with 400 unspent rounds in his black BMW. All were purchased legally."
@AllMyChandler As was the knife that killed his first three victims.— liel leibovitz (@liel) May 25, 2014
It's still unknown if Rodger's fatal gunshot wound to the head was self-inflicted.
3:28 p.m.: It's being reported that the family of Elliot Rodger, the suspect in the California mass shooting, called university police a few weeks ago after seeing YouTube videos "regarding suicide and the killing of people" posted by Rodger online.
That tidbit came from the AP:
Police interviewed Elliot Rodger and found him to be a "perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human," he added. Police did not find a history of guns, but did say Rodger "didn't have a lot of friends," had trouble making friends and didn't have any girlfriends.
2:04 p.m.: As the evidence mounts against shooting suspect Eliot Rodger—his car was reportedly seen at the crime scene—YouTube has removed the video in which Rodger goes on a misogynistic rant and threatens to "slaughter" people.
Youtube pulling the alleged UCSB shooter's highly newsworthy video is questionable. http://t.co/jkpBqhRoN7— Philip Bump (@pbump) May 24, 2014
The video can still be seen here.
