SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA (PIX11)- Another Santa Monica shooting victim has died.

26-year-old Marcela Franco was on campus to buy textbooks with her father when police say they were both shot by a rampaging gunman.

23-year old John Zawahri was reportedly angry over his parents’ divorce.

Zawahri lived with his mother and was upset with his father for leaving her.

He’s accused of killing his father and brother before shooting a woman and carjacking another to drive him to Santa Monica College. That’s where he killed two more before firing at students in the library.

Zawahri was shot and killed by police.
