Ham Among Victims of Santa Monica Shooting Spree
The first victim of John Zawahri's June 7 shooting rampage in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Monica was the shooter's father, Samir Zawahri, who was N6KXL, according to "Newsline." The younger Zawahri reportedly also killed his brother, Christopher, before carjacking his way to Santa Monica College, where he shot to death four more people before either killing himself or being killed by police. According to various news reports, John Zawahri was distraught over his parents' bitter divorce and had previously had mental health problems. Police still do not know his motive for the shooting spree at the college.
