Isla Vista Shooting

May 26, 2014 by  

Isla Vista Shooting, The sorority allegedly targeted by a student whose shooting rampage in Isla Vista near UC Santa Barbara killed seven people, including the gunman, asked for privacy as authorities continued to piece together what happened.

The suspect named by law enforcement, Elliot Rodger, 22, wrote in a document about waging a “war on women,” specifically mentioning a sorority.

“I will attack the very girls who represent everything I hate in the female gender: The hottest sorority of UCSB,” he wrote.

On Friday night, officials said, Rodger shot three women standing outside the Alpha Phi sorority. On Sunday, a sign was posted outside reading: “This organization will not be commenting on last night’s events. Please respect us at this time.” Security guards were also stationed there.

Authorities said Rodger, a Santa Barbara City College student and son of a film director, allegedly began his rampage by fatally stabbing three roommates at his apartment complex.

Officials say he then went to a sorority a few blocks away. Authorities say he loudly banged on the door but no one answered. He then opened fire on three women nearby, fatally wounding two of them, authorities said.

Rodger’s next stop, said Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bob Brown, was a local deli, where he fatally shot a UC Santa Barbara student inside.

The suspect then drove his BMW, opening fire on pedestrians and others on the street, Brown said. He then got into a gun battle with deputies. Apparently wounded, he continued to drive. He was eventually found dead of a gunshot wound to the head that appeared self-inflicted.

Deputies found three guns that were all legally purchased and registered to him.

In the printed document, Rodger described his anger and alienation.

“On the day before the Day of Retribution, I will start the First Phase of my vengeance: Silently killing as many people as I can around Isla Vista by luring them into my apartment through some form of trickery,” he wrote.
