Exploring Motive in Deadly California Rampage
Santa Barbara, CA (CBS 2/FOX 28) - Police in California are still looking into what led a 22-year-old man to go on a rampage that left six people dead on the UC Santa Barbara campus.
Police say 22-year-old Elliot Rodger stabbed three people to death inside his apartment complex on Friday night--before getting into his car, and going on a shooting spree.
Now we're learning that police knew Rodger; they paid a visit to him weeks ago after his parents alerted them about disturbing videos he posted on YouTube.
In one seven minute video, Rodger said he was planning an attack, calling it "a day of retribution," saying others lived better lives than he did.
It's important to note, that Rodger is the son of a Hollywood assistant director, whose latest project was The Hunger Games movies.
On Friday, Rodger emailed a 137-page document titled My Twisted World to his parents and therapist.
Rodgers main point was that he was still a virgin, and blamed women on campus for rejecting his advances.
Along with the six killed, thirteen other people were wounded in the attack.
It ended when Rodger shot and killed himself, as police closed in.
