California mass shooter identified as 22-year-old Elliot Rodger - NY Times

SANTA BARBARA Calif. (Reuters) - A gunman who police say killed six people in a drive-by shooting in a Southern California college town was tentatively identified on Saturday as Elliot Rodger by a family lawyer, U.S. media reported.

The New York Times cited a family lawyer as saying the family was almost certain the gunman was 22-year-old Rodger.

Rodger was found dead in a crashed car following the rampage on Friday night. He was the son of Peter Rodger, an assistant director on the 2012 movie "The Hunger Games."
