CALIFORNIA (AP) - Authorities said a gunman carrying an assault-style rifle killed at least six people in Santa Monica before police killed him during a gunfight in the Santa Monica College library.

Santa Monica Police Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks told reporters Friday that the rampage began at a house in the coastal city.

She said it continued as the man, dressed all in black, made his way to Santa Monica College.

Seabrooks said he killed two people in the house, two more people as he moved several blocks toward the campus and then two more on campus.

She said he was then shot to death by police in the campus library.
