Mother of California College Shooter Mourning

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) --
   An acquaintance says the mother of the gunman who killed five people in Santa Monica, Calif., is in mourning and is trying to make sense of what happened.
   Neighbor Beverly Meadows says she spoke with Randa Abdou on Monday. Abdou cut short a family visit in Lebanon and spoke to investigators Sunday.
   Meadows says Abdou will not be returning to her Los Angeles apartment anytime soon and has no plans to talk to news media.
   Abdou's 23-year-old son John Zawahri, shot his father and brother, leaving their home in flames Friday before opening fire on strangers in cars, a bus and on the Santa Monica College campus.
   Police say he was heavily armed and carrying 1,300 rounds of ammunition when officers killed him in the campus library.
