Multiple Incidents in UCSB College on Friday Night - Video from alleged killer details the kill threats to other students.
According to the latest unconfirmed reports, at least six people were killed and seven injured in a series of Isla Vista shootings that occurred around 9:30 p.m. on Friday night. One of the suspects was also reportedly killed, and another is in custody.
One of the suspects has allegedly been identified by other students as Elliot Rodger, who posted a creepy video with his threats (below) less than 24 hours prior to the shootings, citing a rejection of girls as one of the primary reasons.
UPDATE > Elliot is believed to be the son of Hollywood Director Peter Rodger (Assistant Director of 'The Hunger Games'), and stepson of Soumaya Akaaboune (from the cast of TV show 'Les Vraies Housewives').

Multiple locations are being treated as crime scenes, most around the UCSB college town’s central loop. The incident occurred at the I.V. Deli Mart, the 7-11 near the bottom of the loop, and on streets nearby, including the 6500 block of Del Playa, where one body lay beneath a tarp near a black BMW that was crashed near the curb with a broken windshield.
This matched the description of the car that, according to multiple witnesses, carried the shooter. Other reports suggest that a bicyclist and other pedestrians may have been run over as well. One of the incidents occurred on Embarcadero del Norte between Cordoba and Segovia roads, where a Santa Barbara City College student named Thomas said he heard as many as 20 gunshots.
A second crime scene was inside the Isla Vista Deli Mart, at 6553 Pardall Road, where the old Isla Vista Bookstore used to be. According to the deli’s owner, one of his customers, which he believed to be a male, was hit by bullets shot from a car outside the market and died on scene.
“This seems to be ground zero,” said The Santa Barbara Independent’s news editor Tyler Hayden, who was on scene, though he reported the response on the streets was mixed. “Some people are curious what the hell is going on, and others are cruising around with 18-packs.”
The Sheriff’s Office spokesperson would only confirm that there are multiple scenes and multiple victims and that the situation is fluid. The third crime scene visited by Hayden was the 7-11 in the new Isla Vista Icon development. Two men in handcuffs were being questioned there in full view of a small crowd. That crowd cheered when one of them was put inside the law enforcement vehicle around 11:25 p.m.
Other Media Summary & Update
Officials said the men had refused orders to stay out of the crime scene areas. Anecdotal yet unconfirmed reports from the Isla Vista streets suggest that the vehicle involved was a black BMW with a passenger shooting a handgun. There appears to be another body under a tarp near 6583 Del Playa Drive, according to Hayden. Nearby is a black BMW, matching the description of the vehicle witnesses say was involved in the shooting spree, and its front windshield is smashed in.
