I bet the conspiracy theorists will have a field day with this one. Right, what better way to directly draw the Presidents gun control agenda into focus by having a school shooting in the same city and on the same day Obama is there. There are seven people dead as a result.
Seven people — including the gunman — are dead after a shooting rampage that ended at Santa Monica College, police said.
Santa Monica Police Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks described a violent shooting rampage that appears to have begun in the 2000 block of Yorkshire Avenue just before noon.
Two people were found dead on Yorkshire Avenue and a home was on fire, authorities said.
The gunman then moved west along Pico Boulevard, firing at cars, including a bus and a police vehicle.
One person died at Cloverfield and Pico boulevards; two died at 19th Street and Pico Boulevard. Another woman died at the hospital.
Seabrooks said the gunman may not have acted alone. A second “person of interest” is in custody.
“We are not convinced 100% that the suspect who was killed operated in solo or a lone capacity,” Seabrooks said.
The suspect fled onto Santa Monica College, where he was pursued by police. He shot a woman on campus and ran into the library, where he continued to fire rounds from an assault rifle.
Authorities shot and killed the gunman on campus. He has not yet been identified, but police described him as being 25 to 30 years old…
Obama was just a minutes away from where the shooting took place.
President Obama Friday attended a fundraising event in Santa Monica, just blocks away from a shooting on the campus of Santa Monica College.
Shots were fired just three miles from Obama’s event.
The fundraiser was the first of the President’s two planned stops in the Southland. The President was also slated to visit the Sunnylands estate in Rancho Mirage to meet with the President Xi Jinping of China.
Secret Service officials were informed of the shooting and Obama’s method of travel back to LAX was altered…
Let the loud calls for gun control rise again.
