UPDATE: Sheriff: Calif. gunman killed 3 people at home

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a California gunman who went on a rampage near a Santa Barbara university stabbed three people to death at his apartment before shooting to death three more in as he drove his BMW through a neighborhood.

The killings took place near the University of California, Santa Barbara. The suspected gunman was also fatally shot.

Sheriff Bill Brown called it a "chaotic, rapidly unfolding convoluted incident" that involved multiple crime scenes.

Brown on Saturday identified the gunman as 22-year-old Elliot Rodger, a student at Santa Barbara City College.

Police say he went from one location to another and opened fire on random people and exchanged gunfire with law enforcement before he crashed his BMW. Brown says the suspect had more than 400 rounds of unspent ammunition in his car.
