More Gun Fire in Santa Monica
Los Angeles grieves for those affected by the Friday shooting at Santa Monica College. And its grief must now be extended as more victims have been added to the list of the city’s shootings.
Early Tuesday morning, just blocks away from the anguished college, police responded to a report of shots fired. Two men were taken to the hospital.
The shooting occurred on the 1500 block of Michigan Avenue and police arrived around 8:20 a.m.
Each victim was in serious condition and were both taken for medical operations. However, one man has died due to his injuries. The other victim’s current condition is unknown.
According to the police, the suspect was possibly driving a blue Infiniti. The shooter approached the two men in an alley and began firing shots at them and then left.
Police are still investigating the attack and searching for the suspect and the vehicle.
Friday’s shooting in Santa Monica was conducted by John Zawahri, a 23-year-old former student of the college. He first went to his childhood home and killed his father and brother. He then traveled to the campus where he killed three more victims and injured others until police came bearing arms. Zawahri was shot and died later from the injuries.
Los Angeles can only hope that the police apprehend this new shooter and the two men and their families receive justice.
