Santa Monica College Shooting Leaves Five Dead Including Suspect, Several Others Wounded (UPDATES)




Santa Monica College was placed on lock-down Friday after reports that a suspect fired a gun inside a campus building just before noon.

Five people -- including the gunman -- are dead after a shooting rampage that began at a residence and ended on campus. Several people are being treated for their wounds; one was critically wounded, one is in serious but stable condition and three had minor injuries, confirmed Santa Monica Police Sergeant Richard Lewis during an 8:20 p.m. PST press conference.

Two of the victims, found in a burning house on the 2000 block of Yorkshire Avenue, are believed to be the brother and father of the gunman, the Los Angeles Times reports. Lewis didn't confirm the relationship except to say it could be a possibility.

At the time of the press conference, police believe there was only one shooter, added Sgt. Lewis. One person they took into custody after the shooting was questioned and then released.
