Women walk to Alpha Phi sorority house as part of a memorial Tuesday for Delta Delta Delta sorority sisters Veronika Weiss and Katie Cooper, who were killed in a shooting rampage Friday in Isla Vista, Calif. The shootings by Elliot Rodger left six people and the gunman dead, and another 13 wounded. According to reports, Rodger began his mass killing near the University of California Santa Barbara by stabbing three people to death in an apartment. He then went on to shooting and running down people while driving his BMW until crashing with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Prior to the murders, Rodger posted YouTube videos declaring his intention to annihilate the girls who rejected him sexually and others in retaliation for his remaining a virgin at age 22.
