An American who blew himself up in an attack in Syria on Sunday has been identified by law enforcement officials as Moner Mohammad Abusalha, a man in his early 20s who grew up in Florida and traveled to Syria late last year.

The officials said they believed that Mr. Abusalha, who adopted the nom de guerre Abu Huraira al-Amriki, used a large truck in helping to carry out the bombing in the northern province of Idlib, where he had traveled after spending two months in a training camp of the militant group the Nusra Front in Aleppo. The officials said they thought it was the first time an American had been involved in a suicide attack in Syria.

Mr. Abusalha’s identity was confirmed Friday night by the State Department. American law enforcement and intelligence agencies made the identification after analyzing intelligence from Syria and foreign governments, and information gleaned from interviews with family members and friends of the bomber in Florida, one official said.

A Syrian fighter from the Nusra Front recalled Mr. Abusalha, whom he knew only by his alias, as an Arab-American who spoke Arabic poorly but was dedicated to the jihadist cause. “He was a generous, brave, tough man, always on the front lines in battles,” said the fighter, who identified himself by a nom de guerre, Abu Abdulrahman, and said that he was currently in Idlib Province, where Mr. Abusalha died.

A photo circulating on jihadist social media accounts this week showed a smiling young man, bearded and holding a cat, who was said to be the bomber. Activists also posted a video said to show the attack in which rebels load what appear to be tank shells into a large armored vehicle, and there is an explosion after the vehicle drives down the road.

A Facebook profile of a man with the name Moner Abusalha has pictures that appear to be of the same person shown in the photos on jihadist websites. Many images on the page have Arabic writing and quote the Quran. “Verily, with hardship there is relief,” the profile says on one page. The profile also says he likes basketball, football and Eggo waffles.

Public records databases show that Mr. Abusalha has lived in Fort Pierce and in Vero Beach. A youth league website said he played basketball with the Indian River Warriors in 2007.

The records show that at one point he shared an apartment with his brother in Fort Pierce, a city about 130 miles north of Miami. His parents have lived in Vero Beach, and his family owns several grocery stores in the region.

Reached by telephone, a woman named Michelle Abusalha, apparently his mother, hung up on a reporter. His father, Mohammad, declined to comment.

“Sorry, sorry, we can’t do that,” he said.

Mr. Abusalha had been among several dozen Americans on the radar of federal law enforcement officials because of past trips to Syria.

One senior law enforcement official said the authorities believed that the attack occurred during the second visit Mr. Abusalha made to Syria to fight alongside Islamist militants who are battling the government of President Bashar al-Assad. He had been in Syria since late last year, said officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of a continuing investigation.

News of the suicide attack surfaced on Tuesday in Twitter messages from the Nusra Front, an Islamist extremist group in Syria aligned with Al Qaeda. And on Facebook, there was praise for Mr. Abusalha and what he had done.

“When his turn came up” to carry out a suicide bombing, he “was very happy, because he will meet his God after that,” Abu Abdulrahman, the fighter, said via Facebook.

Ahmed Assi, an activist who works for Suqour al-Sham, a rebel group that fights alongside the Nusra Front, said by phone from Turkey that he had seen the American in Syria about a week before. Mr. Assi said that he did not know the American’s real name, but that he spoke broken Arabic and had converted to Islam.

He and other activists in the area said that fighters with the Nusra Front tended to keep to themselves and stay away from the news media, making it hard for others to gather information about them.

“The Nusra Front is not very interested in media except for releasing what they want to say,” Mr. Assi said.

A statement posted online by the Nusra Front said that the American had been one of four suicide bombers sent to open a rebel assault on government forces near the city of Ariha in northern Syria. On Sunday morning, the statement said, the American drove a vehicle loaded with 16 tons of explosives to attack a mountaintop restaurant where government forces were based. He was followed by three other bombers. Two of them also blew themselves up, and one managed to park his vehicle and retreat before the explosives detonated.

Intelligence and law enforcement officials said on Friday that it was easy for American citizens to get in and out of Syria, and that many had traveled there for humanitarian reasons, presenting a challenge in determining who might be planning to carry out terrorist attacks in the United States when they return.

“It’s trying to identify those individuals who have violent intent,” said Andrew McCabe, a senior F.B.I. official. “That, quite frankly, is not easy.”

Mr. McCabe, speaking at a conference at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, said that Americans who had traveled to Syria came from diverse backgrounds and upbringings.

“When you put them together, they look like America,” he said.

The civil war in Syria, now in its fourth year, has become a magnet for Westerners seeking to fight with the rebels. American officials say that about 100 Americans have traveled to Syria since the civil war began, mainly to fight for one of the hundreds of rebel groups combating the Assad government.

The F.B.I., the C.I.A., the National Counterterrorism Center and the Department of Homeland Security recently created a special team of analysts to try to prevent American jihadists from returning home undetected.

Most of the Americans who have traveled to Syria are still there, officials said, although a few have died in the conflict. Nicole Lynn Mansfield, 33, of Flint, Mich., a convert to Islam, was killed in May 2013 while with Syrian rebels in Idlib Province.

The lone American prisoner of war from the Afghan conflict, captured by insurgents nearly five years ago, has been released to American forces in exchange for five Taliban prisoners held at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, Obama administration officials said Saturday.

The soldier, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, 28, was handed over to American Special Operations troops inside Afghanistan near the Pakistan border about 10:30 a.m. Saturday in a tense but uneventful exchange with 18 Taliban officials, American officials said. Moments later, Sergeant Bergdahl was whisked away by the helicopter-borne commandos, American officials said. He was found in good condition and able to walk.

The five Taliban detainees at Guantánamo, including two senior militant commanders said to be implicated in murdering thousands of Shiites in Afghanistan, were being transferred to the custody of officials from Qatar, who will accompany them back to that Persian Gulf state, where they will be subject to security restrictions, including a one-year travel ban.

All five Taliban members being released are considered to be among the most senior militants at Guantánamo and would otherwise be among the last to leave. Senior administration officials cautioned that the discussions over the prisoner swap, which were secretly restarted last fall after collapsing several months earlier, did not necessarily presage the resumption of the broader, on-again-off-again peace talks to end the 13-year war.

“This is the only issue we’ve discussed with the Taliban in recent months,” said one senior Obama administration official involved in the talks. “We do hope that having succeeded in this narrow but important step, it will create the possibility of expanding the dialogue to other issues. But we don’t have any promises to that effect.”

A Western official in Kabul said the Afghan government was not told ahead of time that the Taliban were going to hand over Sergeant Bergdahl or that the release of prisoners from Guantánamo Bay was proceeding, though the Afghans were broadly aware that the talks had been rekindled. American officials feared leaks could scuttle the deal.

President Obama personally called the soldier’s parents on Saturday, shortly after Sergeant Bergdahl was transferred to the American military; the Bergdahl family was in Washington after a visit here for Memorial Day, officials said.

“Sergeant Bergdahl’s recovery is a reminder of America’s unwavering commitment to leave no man or woman in uniform behind on the battlefield,” Mr. Obama said in a statement.

Bob and Jani Bergdahl, the parents of Sergeant Bergdahl, who have waged a tireless campaign for their son’s release, have sometimes criticized the Obama administration for lack of action. But in a statement from the family released Saturday, they praised the American and Qatari governments for their help. “We cannot wait to wrap our arms around our only son,” they said. “Today, we are ecstatic!”

Negotiations and internal deliberations over the potential for a swap have waxed and waned for years, but they intensified in the past several weeks as an agreement appeared within reach, according to an official familiar with the matter.

Among other complications, there was a potential legal obstacle: Congress has imposed statutory restrictions on the transfer of detainees from Guantánamo Bay. The statutes say the secretary of defense must determine that a transfer is in the interest of national security, that steps have been taken to substantially mitigate a future threat by a released detainee, and that the secretary notify Congress 30 days before any transfer of his determination.

In this case, the administration did not notify Congress ahead of time, officials said. They noted that Mr. Obama has claimed that the transfer restrictions are a potentially unconstitutional intrusion on his powers as the commander in chief. Last December, he issued a signing statement claiming that he could lawfully override them. An administration official said the circumstances of a fast-moving prisoner exchange deal made it appropriate to act outside the statutory framework for transfers.

The top Republicans on the House and Senate Armed Services committees, Representative Howard P. McKeon of California, and Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma, said the release of the Taliban prisoners  “clearly violated laws” governing the transfer of detainees from Guantánamo Bay.

The transfer reduces the detainee population at Guantánamo to 149. They include 12 Afghan nationals — each of whom were deemed far less important and dangerous than the five who were included in the swap.

Sergeant Bergdahl was believed to have been held by the militant Haqqani network in the tribal area of Pakistan’s northwest frontier, on the Afghan border. He was captured in Paktika Province in Afghanistan on June 30, 2009.

The circumstances of how he was separated from his unit and captured have remained a mystery.

Hopes for Sergeant Bergdahl’s release were lifted again last November when the Taliban signaled it was prepared to engage the United States on the limited issue of a prisoner swap, but not on wider issues including reconciliation with the government of Afghanistan, a senior administration official said Saturday.

The discussions resumed with the Qatari government acting as an intermediary for messages between the two sides, the official said.

The latest evidence indicating that Sergeant Bergdahl, who was promoted twice while being held as a prisoner, was still alive came in January, when a video was obtained by the American military showing him alert but also apparently in declining health.

In the past week, detailed negotiations culminated in an agreement for a Taliban delegation to bring Sergeant Bergdahl across the border to Afghanistan, where he would be retrieved by American Special Operations troops.

Mr. Obama called the emir of Qatar on Tuesday, and they gave each other assurances about the proposed transfers, an administration official said Saturday.

Sergeant Bergdahl was handed over about 7 p.m. local time without incident with the Special Operations troops spending only a few minutes on the ground, said American officials, who did not disclose the swap’s location inside Afghanistan.

The details of what the government believes it knows about the five former Taliban leaders were made public in classified military files given to WikiLeaks by Pfc. Bradley Manning, now Chelsea Manning.

Mohammad Nabi Omari is described in the files as “one of the most significant former Taliban leaders detained” at Guantánamo. He is said to have strong operational ties to anti-coalition militia groups, including Al Qaeda, the Taliban and the Haqqani network.

A former Taliban provincial governor, Mullah Norullah Noori, is also “considered one of the most significant former Taliban officials” at the prison, according to the documents.

Both Mr. Noori and a third detainee being exchanged, Mullah Mohammad Fazl, a former Taliban deputy defense minister, are accused of having commanded forces that killed thousands of Shiite Muslims, a minority in Afghanistan, before the Taliban were toppled in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The fourth detainee is Abdul Haq Wasiq, a former top Taliban intelligence official. The fifth prisoner, Khirullah Said Wali Khairkhwa, is a former minister of the interior and provincial governor.

The Western official in Kabul said the Afghan government was not told about the deal beforehand because there had been a number of false starts since the negotiations over the prisoner swap had picked up in the past few weeks.

One of the Americans’ chief concerns was that word of the plan would leak, and the Taliban would get cold feet or face pressure from harder line elements in the insurgency not to release Sergeant Bergdahl.

The Americans also feared the possibility of the exchange being upended by an outburst from Afghan President Hamid Karzai, who might see the prisoner swap as an attempt to open peace talks with the Taliban behind his back.

He has previously claimed that the United States aimed to weaken the Afghan government by cutting a separate peace with the Taliban and its backers in Pakistan, and “no one wanted to deal with that kind of stuff right now,” the Western official said.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department officials Sunday identified the first three victims of the Isla Vista rampage, each found fatally stabbed Friday night inside an apartment not far from the UC Santa Barbara campus.

Now, all the attacker’s victims have been identified, and they were all UCSB students.

The latest names to be released — Cheng Yuan Hong, 20, of San Jose; George Chen, 19, of San Jose; and Weihan Wang, 20, of Fremont — were stabbed multiple times in unit No. 7 of a two-story, charcoal gray building on Seville Road. Authorities say 22-year-old Elliot Rodger attacked them before going on a rampage through Isla Vista, killing three more people before taking his own life.

All three were students at UC Santa Barbara, and Hong and Chen were roommates. It’s unclear whether Wang also was a roommate or was just visiting, officials said in a releaseFinding their bodies inside the apartment was “a horrific crime scene,” Sheriff Bill Brown said.

Hidden in Rodger’s bedroom were three guns purchased legally from licensed dealers in Goleta, Oxnard and Burbank, authorities said. They said Rodger used the guns and his black BMW to wreak havoc across a square mile of the quiet college town — running down cyclists and skateboarders, shooting through shop windows and exchanging fire with officers.

At 9:30 p.m. Friday, Rodger got in his car and drove to UC Santa Barbara’s Alpha Phi sorority house, where he banged aggressively on the door for more than a minute, officials said.

The events of the evening were unfolding just as Rodger had described in a 137-page diatribe and in multiple online videos, vowing to kill people quietly at his home, then go to a sorority house to “slaughter” women.

“Fortunately, no one opened the door” at the sorority house, Brown said. But before leaving, Rodger shot three women on the front lawn. UC Santa Barbara students Katherine Cooper and Veronika Weiss died. A third survived multiple gunshot wounds.

According to authorities, Rodger then steered his BMW through the streets of Isla Vista, an unincorporated community on the coast of Santa Barbara County, driving by a nearby deli and fatally shooting 20-year-old student Christopher Martinez.

Rodger eventually ran into the back of a jeep and came to a halt, the right wheel well of his BMW on fire, the driver’s door thrown open. Authorities found him dead inside the car.

At least one of Rodger’s roommates had encountered issues with him before: In January, Rodger accused Hong of stealing three candles, valued at $22, said Joyce Dudley, Santa Barbara County district attorney.

When Hong said he didn’t know where the candles were, Rodger performed a citizen’s arrest and called 911. Sheriff’s deputies found the candles on Hong’s bed. He was arrested and charged with a petty theft infraction.

Hong was a computer science student who grew up in Taipei, according to his Facebook page. He graduated in 2012 from Lynbrook High School in San Jose.

Shooting rampage kills 7 near UCSB

May 24, 2014

Authorities said the suspect in the Isla Vista shooting rampage began his alleged crime spree by fatally stabbing three people at his apartment complex Friday night.

Officials said Elliot Rodger then went to a sorority a few blocks away and opened fire on three women nearby, fatally wounding two of them.

Rodger’s next stop, said Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown, was a local deli, where he fatally shot a UC Santa Barbara student inside.

The suspect them drove his BMW, opening fire on pedestrians and others on the street, Brown said. He then got into a gun battle with deputies. Apparently wounded, he continued to drive. He was eventually captured by police, who found him dead of a gunshot wound to the head.

Deputies found four guns, and all were legally purchased and registered to him, Brown said.

Rodger, a Santa Barbara City College student and son of a film director, talks in a 140-page statement of his plans for revenge against people he believe mistreated him.

“All of my suffering on this world has been at the hands of humanity, particularly women, it has made me realize just how brutal and twisted humanity is as a species,” he wrote. His life  “is a dark story of sadness, anger and hatred. It is a story of war against cruel injustice.”

He also vows violence. “On the day before the Day of Retribution, I will start the First Phase of my vengeance: Silently killing as many people as I can around Isla Vista by luring them into my apartment through some form of trickery,” he wrote.

The manifesto, which was first reported by Channel 3 in Santa Barbara, appears to be similar to YouTube videos Rodger made.

One of Rodger’s parents called a law enforcement agency last month, warning them about disturbing videos he was posting online, according to a source close to the family. It was unclear which videos they saw.

In the last video posted on Friday night and titled “Elliot Rodger’s retribution,” Rodger described his anger toward women and men.

“I’m 22 years old and still a virgin, never even kissed a girl. And through college, 2 1/2 years, more than that actually, I’m still a virgin. It has been very torturous,” he said. “The popular kids, you never accepted me and now you will all pay for it. Girls, all I ever wanted was to love you, be loved by you. I wanted a girlfriend. I wanted sex, love, affection, adoration.”

“”You forced me to suffer all my life, now I will make you all suffer,” he said. “All you girls who rejected me, looked down upon me, you know, treated me like scum while you gave yourselves to other men. And all of you men for living a better life than me, all of you sexually active men. I hate you. I hate all of you. I can’t wait to give you exactly what you deserve, annihilation.”

Santa Barbara County sheriff’s officials, who have not identified the man suspected of shooting and running people down with his BMW, said they believe the rampage was premeditated. However a law enforcement source told The Times that Elliott Rodger is the suspected gunman.

Authorities and witnesses said the shooting began about 9:30 p.m. in a densely packed, student-dominated community along the coast. They said there were at least nine crime scenes connected to the shooting.

At the IV Deli Market, in the 6500 block of Pardell Road, Lyssa Hopper, a 19-year-old student, was buying some Gatorade and soda. As she was purchasing the items she heard what she said were multiple gunshots.

Then, she said, she saw glass flying and dropped to the ground. When she looked up, she saw a male on the ground by the door in a pool of blood.

“He was slumped over, and he was bleeding,” Hopper said.

Hopper said she knew the victim, who she identified as Chris Martinez, a second-year student at UC Santa Barbara. She said she tried to help administer CPR but was so flustered by the incident she was unable to render aid until paramedics arrived.

She said, though tears, that Martinez was among the deceased victims.

Nearby on the same block, Manny Rodriguez, 57, was delivering sandwiches in Isla Vista for Sam’s To Go when a girl ran out of the deli screaming.

“The guy unloaded a full clip, a nine clip,” Rodriguez said. “He was shooting fast.”

The windows of the shooter’s BMW were so tinted that Rodriguez said he couldn’t see the flash of the shots being fired from inside the car. He said the attacker was shooting out the passenger window as he drove down the street.

Yet a few blocks further south on what is known as the loop, Kevin de Bree, a fourth-year history major, said he was heading to a 7-Eleven when he heard shots.

He walked farther down the street, and by the time he got to the Little Acorn Park across the street from the 7-Eleven, he saw a black BMW pull up to the 7-Eleven. It looked like someone was leaning out of the car, and there was such chaos that De Bree at first thought there must’ve been two people in the BMW.

“I heard shots, I heard people scream, I realized this was actually gunfire.” De Bree said he ran back into the park.

From the park, about 100 feet away, he saw the scene unfold at the 7-Eleven.

“I saw a few people collapse, a few people run, a few go in the store. It was chaos. There were a bunch of people on the street corner like me, and we were all running away,” De Bree said. He later heard that one woman was shot in the leg at the 7-Eleven. But at the time, he couldn’t see or process anything clearly.

At first, the gunshots sounded like they were coming from a handgun – there were a lot of “loud bangs,” De Bree said. “But later, I distinctly remembering thinking ‘that was definitely an automatic weapon.‘ I heard like 20 shots in a row.”

“It sounded like I was in a war zone,” he said. “It definitely sounded like the shooter was exchanging fire with someone … it was intense.”

About a block south of the 7-Eleven, E.J. Debowski was standing on his porch in the 6600 block of Sabado Tarde Road. Dakota Waterworth, a third-year university student was inside his house changing after a shower on the same block.

Waterworth heard a crash, ran outside, and then heard a cyclist yelling, “Call the police! He hit me on purpose!”

The cyclist had abandoned his bike and fallen into a car across the street. Meanwhile, the suspect’s black BMW was speeding to the end of the residential block, Waterworth said.

From the middle of the road, the car veered right, forcing one person to jump out of the way. Another young man on a skateboard was nicked by the car, Waterworth said.

“It’s clear he’s intentionally trying to hunt someone,” Waterworth said of the driver.

Debowski was  looking at the skateboarder coming down the street when the car behind him sped up to what Debowski estimated was 45 mph. The car struck the skateboarder, identified as Elliot Gee, a junior.

“His skateboard flew in the air,” Debowski said. “His face was bloody, but he was able to respond to our questions.”

Gee was able to limp to a wooden fence and lean on it. Waterworth, a friend of Gee, said he suffered only minor injuries, including a lost tooth.

As the car approached the end of the block, the BMW slowed down, Waterworth said, perhaps so the gunman could load his gun. Then the car continued down  Sabado Tarde, and Waterworth estimated that between 20 and 30 shots rang out in a matter of seconds.

Waterworth said the car then turned right down Embarcadero del Norte and eventually crashed.

Meanwhile Waterworth was attending to the skateboarder, when a long-haired young man wearing board shorts and carrying a bloodied white shirt over his shoulder came walking by covered in blood and crying.   “A girl died tonight,” the young man said.

Outside a two-story apartment building on Del Playa Drive where the BMW crashed, a group of residents emerged from their homes Saturday morning to watch a tow truck pull the BMW away.

Jahangir Siddiqui, a senior originally from San Diego, said right around 10 p.m. Friday night, “we heard some gunshots in the distance. About a minute later, the scene came here.”

Then he heard a crash, and about 30 gunshots in total.

From the window of his second-floor apartment, Siddiqui saw that the front right tire of the crashed BMW was on fire. There was a huge hole in the windshield, he said, and there was a mangled bike about 100 yards away, but he didn’t see anybody on the bike.

At first, there was just one officer who ran up to the car with his weapon drawn. But within a minute, there were four or five patrol cars and a dozen officers there, Siddiqui said. There were people on the streets scattered and running right after the crash.

Siddiqui saw the suspect in the car, looking “bloodied, his body looked limp.”

He said it was unclear if the suspect was still alive or unconscious at that moment. Eventually, authorities dragged the body out of the car. They laid the body on the street and covered it with a yellow tarp.

Shooting rampage kills 7 near UCSB

May 24, 2014

Authorities said the suspect in the Isla Vista shooting rampage began his alleged crime spree by fatally stabbing three people at his apartment complex Friday night.

Officials said Elliot Rodger then went to a sorority a few blocks away and opened fire on three women nearby, fatally wounding two of them.

Rodger’s next stop, said Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown, was a local deli, where he fatally shot a UC Santa Barbara student inside.

The suspect them drove his BMW, opening fire on pedestrians and others on the street, Brown said. He then got into a gun battle with deputies. Apparently wounded, he continued to drive. He was eventually captured by police, who found him dead of a gunshot wound to the head.

Deputies found four guns, and all were legally purchased and registered to him, Brown said.

Rodger, a Santa Barbara City College student and son of a film director, talks in a 140-page statement of his plans for revenge against people he believe mistreated him.

“All of my suffering on this world has been at the hands of humanity, particularly women, it has made me realize just how brutal and twisted humanity is as a species,” he wrote. His life  “is a dark story of sadness, anger and hatred. It is a story of war against cruel injustice.”

He also vows violence. “On the day before the Day of Retribution, I will start the First Phase of my vengeance: Silently killing as many people as I can around Isla Vista by luring them into my apartment through some form of trickery,” he wrote.

The manifesto, which was first reported by Channel 3 in Santa Barbara, appears to be similar to YouTube videos Rodger made.

One of Rodger’s parents called a law enforcement agency last month, warning them about disturbing videos he was posting online, according to a source close to the family. It was unclear which videos they saw.

In the last video posted on Friday night and titled “Elliot Rodger’s retribution,” Rodger described his anger toward women and men.

“I’m 22 years old and still a virgin, never even kissed a girl. And through college, 2 1/2 years, more than that actually, I’m still a virgin. It has been very torturous,” he said. “The popular kids, you never accepted me and now you will all pay for it. Girls, all I ever wanted was to love you, be loved by you. I wanted a girlfriend. I wanted sex, love, affection, adoration.”

“”You forced me to suffer all my life, now I will make you all suffer,” he said. “All you girls who rejected me, looked down upon me, you know, treated me like scum while you gave yourselves to other men. And all of you men for living a better life than me, all of you sexually active men. I hate you. I hate all of you. I can’t wait to give you exactly what you deserve, annihilation.”

Santa Barbara County sheriff’s officials, who have not identified the man suspected of shooting and running people down with his BMW, said they believe the rampage was premeditated. However a law enforcement source told The Times that Elliott Rodger is the suspected gunman.

Authorities and witnesses said the shooting began about 9:30 p.m. in a densely packed, student-dominated community along the coast. They said there were at least nine crime scenes connected to the shooting.

At the IV Deli Market, in the 6500 block of Pardell Road, Lyssa Hopper, a 19-year-old student, was buying some Gatorade and soda. As she was purchasing the items she heard what she said were multiple gunshots.

Then, she said, she saw glass flying and dropped to the ground. When she looked up, she saw a male on the ground by the door in a pool of blood.

“He was slumped over, and he was bleeding,” Hopper said.

Hopper said she knew the victim, who she identified as Chris Martinez, a second-year student at UC Santa Barbara. She said she tried to help administer CPR but was so flustered by the incident she was unable to render aid until paramedics arrived.

She said, though tears, that Martinez was among the deceased victims.

Nearby on the same block, Manny Rodriguez, 57, was delivering sandwiches in Isla Vista for Sam’s To Go when a girl ran out of the deli screaming.

“The guy unloaded a full clip, a nine clip,” Rodriguez said. “He was shooting fast.”

The windows of the shooter’s BMW were so tinted that Rodriguez said he couldn’t see the flash of the shots being fired from inside the car. He said the attacker was shooting out the passenger window as he drove down the street.

Yet a few blocks further south on what is known as the loop, Kevin de Bree, a fourth-year history major, said he was heading to a 7-Eleven when he heard shots.

He walked farther down the street, and by the time he got to the Little Acorn Park across the street from the 7-Eleven, he saw a black BMW pull up to the 7-Eleven. It looked like someone was leaning out of the car, and there was such chaos that De Bree at first thought there must’ve been two people in the BMW.

VIDEO: Caught on Tape: Home Explodes After Officer Shot

May 12, 2014

A New Hampshire house exploded and was engulfed in flames as police were responding to a shooting incident there today, state police told ABC News.

It was unclear what caused the explosion at the house, located in a development called Mill Pond Crossing, a retirement community, police said.

A team from state Police SWAT was on the scene and police said they believe someone inside the house was shooting.

Neighboring houses were evacuated and firefighters initially stayed away from the blaze because of the suspected shooting, police said.
