Seven Dead in Santa Barbara Drive-Bys

A gunman killed seven people and wounded seven more in a series of drive-by shootings near the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara. The shooter was found dead of a gunshot wound in his black BMW after he exchanged fire with law enforcement officials. The spree began in the Isla Vista neighborhood and spread across nine different crime scenes, officials said. They have identified the shooter, but declined to release his name until they have a positive identification; however, social media quickly connected the shootings to a YouTube video called "Elliot Rodger's Retribution," and police confirmed that they believed the video was related to the crime.
