A violent rampage that left four dead in suburban Orange County began in the pre-dawn hours Tuesday when a 20-year-old killed a woman in his home and sped away in his parents' car, authorities said.
An hour later, it was over — but not before Ali Syed had killed two more people during carjackings, shot up vehicles on a busy freeway interchange and left three others injured in a trail of carnage that stretched across 25 miles.
One driver was forced from his BMW at a stop sign, marched to a curb and shot in the back of the head as other commuters watched in horror.
"He was basically executed," Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said. "There were at least six witnesses."Details are emerging this morning about the killer. They are going largely un-reported by the major media here in the U.S. The London Daily Mail, Russia Today, and other overseas sources are indicating that the killer was a loner living at home with his parents. He was unemployed. He was enrolled part-time at a local community college.
