US police have confirmed that a man who killed six people in a rampage in California was 22-year-old Elliot Rodger, BBC reported.
The student was the son of Hollywood filmmaker Peter Rodger, who was assistant director on The Hunger Games.
At a news conference, police said Elliot Rodger had stabbed three male room-mates to death at his apartment.
He later went on a rampage through Isla Vista in a black BMW, shooting at people at random.
After exchanging gunfire with police, Rodger was found dead inside his crashed vehicle with a gunshot wound to the head, police said.
