One more shooting spree

Four people died Tuesday morning in a 25-minute shooting spree that terrorized drivers and shut down stretches of freeway in Orange County, Calif.

Among those dead is the suspected gunman, who police say killed himself before officers could take him into custody.

At least two other people were reportedly wounded during the chaotic rampage, which involves at least three attempted carjackings and six crime scenes.

In less than an hour, a 20-year-old student shot and killed a woman in her home and two commuters during carjackings early Tuesday, shot up vehicles on a Southern California freeway and committed suicide as police closed in on him, authorities said.

One driver was forced from his BMW at a red light, marched to a curb and killed as witnesses watched in horror.

1. This seems to have been a domestic issue


Ali Syed shot a young woman at his parents' home (where he lived) and then tried to escape. His parents called the police to report him.


Orange County sheriff's officials on Tuesday identified the suspect in series of fatal shootings and carjackings as Ali Syed, a 20-year-old community college student with no criminal record.

Authorities don't have a motive for the shootings, which began with the slaying of a woman at Syed's south Orange County home, spread north in a series of random and deadly carjackings, and ended with his suicide in the city of Orange.

Syed was described as an unemployed man who was taking a class at Saddleback College. He had no criminal record and was living with his parents on Red Leaf Lane in Ladera Ranch, Amormino said...

Deputies were called to their home about 4:45 a.m. after his parents reported a shooting, Amormino said. Responding deputies found a woman dead inside who had been shot multiple times.

The relationship between the woman and Syed was not yet known, Amormino said, although she was not related to the suspect. The woman has not yet been identified.

Family members, including children, were at the home at the time of the shooting, Amormino said, but no other injuries were reported....
