A drive-by shooter went on a rampage near a Santa Barbara university campus that left seven people dead, including the attacker, and seven others wounded.
Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said the gunman got into two gun battles with deputies during Friday night's rampage in the beachside community of Isla Vista before crashing his black BMW into a parked car.
Deputies found him dead with a gunshot wound to the head, but it wasn't immediately clear whether he was killed by gunfire or if he committed suicide.
A semi-automatic handgun was recovered from the scene near the University of California, Santa Barbara.
Investigators know the gunman's name, but Brown said he couldn't release it pending notification of relatives. He said they are looking at both written and videotaped evidence.
