[Updated at 8:26 p.m. ET] In the middle of a shooting spree that killed three people and unleashed terror on Southern California motorists Tuesday morning, Ali Syed told one of his carjacking victims to walk away, police say.
"Mr. Syed ... said, 'I don't want to hurt you, I killed somebody. Today's my last day. Give me your keys,'" Tustin Police Chief Scott Jordan told reporters.
According to preliminary accounts from police, Syed, 20, didn't intentionally spare another target.
Police say they believe Syed, a part-time college student, fatally shot a woman at his family's Ladera Ranch home before killing two other people - including a senior citizen executed outside his vehicle - and wounding three others as he fired a shotgun at Orange County motorists on the Costa Mesa Freeway and committed three carjackings.
The spree ended when Syed died after he turned his gun on himself as police approached on a road north of Tustin, authorities say.FULL STORY

Yes. It is unbelievable that you sent that message with a lowly android.
Or as the NRA calls him, "A Good Guy With A Gun." Lovely.
@Fred....I can almost assure you he was NOT a "law abiding citizen" so can you explain how this incident has anything to do with the NRA??
wow unreal. misery loves company instead of geting help for himself he would rather kill himself and take as many lives he can. thrrrs other ways to solve your problems.what society pretends to ignore. people around him that knew him probaly see? this coming.why dont people report these sort of things. it can be prevented. if people would take the initative to get him some kind of treatment at a mental clinic. I believe if ge seeked some kind of mental behavioral care the possiblity of this hapening. none. why isnt this available to the public when its all out in the open like a website or number that you call for the other person. because they apparently cant help themselves.
this is something that should of never happen. and the worst part was the symptoms he was having was not hard to tell and people interact with him can see this. they should of got him help.
I hope he was an NRA member. One less of them.
Jerk! Just take yourself out first without killing innocent people.
EVERYONE like our "modern day america"? I USED to think gun control would help, BUT, WE do not want that! WE cannot even get our "elected children" to agree to help people with mental problems! Say or think what you want but the power is in the hands of those that have $$$$!
Why get rattled folks ? This is just gun violence.
An almost everyday 'event' on our soil.
Yes@ronvan, viva NRA=$$$$
This was right up the street from my work. Scary stuff. Still haven't heard what the heck set this guy off. And why the hell is everyone running around shooting people lately?
