A gunman shooting from his car killed six in Southern California before crashing his car, after which he was found dead.

Seven more people were wounded in what the Santa Barbara County Sheriff described as a premeditated atrocity late on Friday in the town of Isla Vista near the campus of the University of California at Santa Barbara.

“This incident appears to be a mass murder situation,” Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown told a televised news conference. “We currently have seven people confirmed dead, that includes the suspect and six victims.”…

The sheriff said deputies twice exchanged fire with the gunman before his vehicle crashed and he was found dead inside from a gunshot wound to the head. Authorities recovered a semiautomatic handgun, he said.

“We have obtained and are currently analyzing both written and videotaped evidence that suggests this atrocity was a premeditated mass murder,” Brown said, describing the shooting as the “obviously the work of a madman.”

    Here we go – another Republican hero exercising his right to “open carry” – what is everybody complaining about? This is exactly what the Republicans want – old Wild West values.

    I am a more gun control liberal, but these articles are misleading. 7 dead in mass shooting equals 3 shot , 3 stabbed in his apartment and the dead killer himself. Had to read several articles to come away with the facts. This gives the cons reason to say the “liberal” media is spinning the story. The facts are on our side, use them, don’t spin them.
