At least six people are dead after a series of shootings around a college in Santa Monica, California, United States.
The rampage began at a house and ended on campus where police say they shot the gunman in the college library, according to BBC reports.
Police say the attacker killed two people in the home, two more as he headed to the nearby Santa Monica College and another two on campus.
The gunman was described as in his late 20s, wearing a bullet-proof jacket and armed with an assault-style rifle.
The college is streets away from a fundraising event that was attended by President Barack Obama on Friday, although there is no suggestion of any link.
