Gunman in California rampage once held for psychiatric evaluation
Steve Gorman and Dana FeldmanLOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The slain California gunman who killed five people in a rampage through Santa Monica was a onetime digital-media student who endured a troubled home life and spent several days as a teen in the psychiatric unit of a hospital, according to police, college officials and court records.
A fragmented portrait of the suspect, John Zawahri, took clearer shape on Monday as police continued to investigate what led him to lash out in a spasm of gun violence that claimed a total of six lives, including his own, on the eve of his 24th birthday.
Investigators believe the origin of last Friday's shooting spree was "domestic-related," Santa Monica Police spokesman Sergeant Richard Lewis said. He declined to elaborate.
