The 22-year-old male responsible for a shooting rampage that left seven people dead near University of California Santa Barbara, is thought to be the son of “The Hunger Games” Assistant Director, Peter Rodgers, several media outlets reported Saturday.
The killer, Elliot Rodgers, shot six people in a series of drive-by-shootings Friday night, shortly after posting chilling videos expressing his sexual frustrations and murderous plans.
His step-mother was actress Soumaya Akaaboune, who appeared in “The Green Zone” and was a star of a French version of “The Real Housewives” reality series.
In several online videos Elliot Rodgers explains his need to punish women who have snubbed him.
“Girls gave their affection and sex and love to other men but never to me,” he says in one video.
“All those girls that I’ve desired so much, they would’ve all rejected me and looked down upon me as an inferior man if I ever made a sexual advance towards them while they throw themselves at these obnoxious brutes,” he continues, adding that he’d take “great pleasure in slaughtering” them.
