New details have emerged surrounding Elliot Rodger and the killing rampage this 22-year old went on Friday night in the California college town of Isla Vista.

According to a YouTube video posted hours prior to his attack, Rodger targeted the women who snubbed him over the years, along with the men they selected over him, in a stabbing and shooting massacre than took the lives of six people.

"I'll take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you," Rodger says in the disturbing video, adding that he’s a virgin who never even kissed a girl and saying:

"I don't know why you girls are so repulsed by me. I am polite. I am the ultimate gentleman. And yet, you girls never give me a chance. I don't know why."

Of the males Rodger viewers as his rivals, he warned:

"I deserve girls much more than all those slobs... you will finally see that I am, in truth, the superior one, the true alpha male."

The first casualties on Friday were male stabbing victims in Rodger's apartment whose names have not been released, Sheriff Bill Brown told CNN this morning.

Around 9:30 p.m., Rodger shot three woman near the Alpha Phi sorority house, having written in a manifesto titled “My Twisted World” that he sat in his car "to stalk” the sorority on multiple occasions.

He then drove to a deli where he walked inside and shot and killed another UC Santa Barbara student, 20-year-old Christopher Michaels-Martinez.

Following this kill, Rodger drove around Isla Vista and shot at more pedestrians while running some down with his car. Aside from the deceased, a total of 13 people were injured in the massacre.

Deputies later found three semi-automatic handguns, all purchased legally, with 400 unspent rounds in Rodger's black BMW.

It is believed the 22-year old was shot in the hip and then took his own life via gunshot to the head.

Family attorney Alan Shifman said in an interview with ABC this weekend that Rodger was the victim of a serious bullying incident at a party about 18 months ago and he is “sure that played a role in the terrible consequences” that followed.

At the request of concerned relatives, deputies made a "welfare call" on Elliot April 30 but "determined he did not meet the criteria for an involuntary mental health hold," Sheriff Brown said during a news conference last night.

Added Shifman in his statement:

"The Rodger family offers our deepest compassion and sympathies to the families involved in this terrible tragedy. We are experiencing the most inconceivable pain and our hearts go out to everyone involved."

The reaction to the Elliot Rodges crimes is an immediate cry for more gun control. The reaction should be to make sure that Elliot Rodges is forever shamed for his uncredably evil thoughts and actions which might serve as a guide to others who share a desire to follow in his path. Elliot Rodges must be buried under an"out house" complete with Photos of Elliot and detais of his crime.. Visitors to this shrine should be encouraged to deposit their repects to this piece of crap named Elliot and on future Memorial days a running account of total deposits should be posted. This might serve to discourage other avengers from their plans.
