uc santa barbara shootingShooting from a slow moving car, a gunman shot up a small California college town killing six and injuring another seven. Seven dead total includes the alleged gunman.

The lone gunman shot up the college town of Isla Vista close to the University of California, Santa Barbara. According to reports, he drove around the small town and talked to people before opening fire at random and just killing and injuring many. But as horrible as this massacre is, the details emerging after it have been even more chilling. There's even a video possibly showing the gunman … and it'll give you nightmares.

The video posted by Elliot Rodger, called "Elliot Rodger's Retribution" is being linked by police to the massacre that started last night at around 9:30 p.m. local time in California. In the video, Rodger recounts how he's constantly being rejected by women and that he's finally taking matters into his own hands. "If I can't have you, girls, I will destroy you," he says in the horrible video. "You deserve to be annihilated, and I will give that to you." I couldn't bring myself to watch the whole thing, but his temper tantrum did not end well. At the beginning, he says how he's a 22-year-old virgin. It's crazy that he followed through with all the threats, if he is indeed the gunman. Now seven people are dead, seven are injured in one of the worst mass killings I've heard of … and all because of this guy's insecurities. News sites are reporting that Rodger is the son of a Hunger Games assistant director.

"The sheriff's office has obtained and is currently analyzing written and video evidence that suggests this was a premeditated mass murder," Santa Barbara sheriff's office spokeswoman told CNN.

After the 10-minute shooting spree last night, officers found the body of the alleged gunman in his black BMW. It's yet unclear whether he took his own life of police were responsible as there was an exchange of fire at the end. The death and injuries were scattered over NINE different crime scenes all over the small college town.

Clearly, there's still a lot we need to learn about his horrible massacre. The mentally disturbed possible gunman's chilling video is among the scariest pieces of evidence I'm sure police are culling through now. The victims have also not been identified until their families are notified.

My thoughts and prayers are with the victims who are recuperating and the families of those whose lives were senselessly taken. As the details come out about this tragedy, let's keep all these people in our prayers.
