calliforniaWashington, Jun 8 (PTI) At least six people were killed as a gunman went on a rampage in Southern California, before being shot down by the police at a college library, some three miles away from where US President Obama was attending a fundraiser. According to Santa Monica Police Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks, the gunman was 25 to 30 years old and dressed all in black, wearing what appeared to be a ballistic jacket. Another person of interest is said to be in police custody. "We are not convinced 100 per cent that the suspect who was killed operated in a solo or alone capacity," Seabrooks said at a hurriedly convened news conference. It was not immediately clear where all the deceased victims were killed. In all six people � all women � were taken to two hospitals, including two in critical condition, one of whom died, media reported. Seabrooks said there were at least six incidents across the city ending in the Santa Monica College. An eyewitness on the college campus, Jason Garrett, told CNN the suspected shooter was dressed in black and appeared to be wearing a tactical vest and carrying a rifle.
