Santa Monica Shooting: Six Dead, Five Hurt

A gunman has been killed by police after a shooting spree that spread across a Southern California city and onto a college campus, leaving at least six people dead, authorities have said.

Santa Monica police chief Jacqueline Seabrooks said the rampage began just before noon on Friday when emergency calls reported shots fired and a house on fire.

Upon arriving at the scene, they found a home engulfed in flames, and the bodies of at least two men inside.

A woman was also found shot in the arm in a car outside the home and was taken to hospital.
