Santa Monica Shooting

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) – A woman who was critically wounded in the Santa Monica shooting rampage has died, bringing the total number of victims killed by the gunman to five.

Santa Monica College officials say 26-year-old Marcela Franco died Sunday at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.

She had been a passenger in a Ford Explorer driven by her father, 68-year-old campus employee Carlos Navarro Franco, who also was killed in the attack.

Police shot the gunman dead in the school’s library Friday.

The shooter has not been identified because police are working to contact his next of kin.
