Seven other were also reported injured in the tragic shooting spree which is dubbed as "premeditated mass murder" by police after an initial analysis of written and videotaped evidence. The County Sheriff Bill Brown also called the shooter as "severely mentally disturbed."
"We have obtained and are currently analyzing videotaped evidence that suggests that this atrocity was a premeditated mass murder," Sheriff Brown told reporters.
The gunman got into two gun battles with deputies in the beachside community of Isla Vista before crashing his black BMW into a parked car, Brown told further. The suspect was found dead with a gun shot in his head but it wasn't immediately clear whether he was killed by gunfire or if he committed suicide, he said.
