SANTA MONICA, Calif. (KTLA) — An alleged gunman was shot and killed by police at Santa Monica College on Friday after killing at least six people in a series of shootings across the city.
“At this hour, it appears at least a half dozen are dead and as many as two or three are injured,” Santa Monica Police Department Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks said at a Friday afternoon news conference.
Seabrooks added that the number of victims was subject to chance as the investigation unfolds.
“Information is still coming in as this is unfolding and we’re still fairly early in this,” Seabrooks said.
Two of the victims were confirmed dead inside a home at 2036 Yorkshire Ave., Seabrooks said.
One was killed near Cloverfield and Pico boulevards and two were killed near 19th and Pearl streets, according to the chief.
The alleged gunman was shot and killed at the college and “I believe that one person died at the hospital,” Seabrooks said.

Neighbors also saw a man, dressed in all black, firing shots at a vehicle outside the home, witnesses said.
“It was really scary. I’ve never seen anything like this in my life,” said Reid Rosson, who witnessed the incident.
