Shocking CCTV footage has emerged of the moment a gunman started shooting at people inside a store.
The surveillance images allegedly showed Elliot Rodger, 22, unloading his weapon at the IV Deli Mart, which was located near the Santa Barbara campus of the University of California.
CNN, which obtained the footage exclusively, only released part of the video, which showed scared customers cowering on the ground after Rodger started shooting.
The news channel did not reveal more because they deemed the content too graphic, but it was believed the CCTV camera also caught the moment student Christopher Martinez, 20, was shot dead by Rodger.
The British-born son of The Hunger Games assistant director Peter Rodger stabbed three men to death in his apartment before killing three more people in a shooting spree around the university.
Sheriff Bill Brown said the suspect, a student of Santa Barbara City College, was believed to have shot himself in his car after he fought two gun battles with police.
Among the dead were two women, aged 19 and 22, who were gunned down outside a university sorority house.
