ISLA VISTA, Calif. (KGO) — Authorities have identified the three men found fatally stabbed in the apartment of Elliot Rodger, who police say fatally shot three others in a killing spree that ended with his suicide.
The Santa Barbara sheriff’s office said Sunday that the stabbing victims were 20-year-old Cheng Yuan Hong and 19-year-old George Chen – both from San Jose – and 20-year-old Weihan “David” Wang of Fremont.
The three UC Santa Barbara students were the first killed in Friday night’s rampage.
ABC7 News reporter Lilian Kim spoke with friends of Wang. They say he graduated from Fremont Christian School and was a sophomore at UCSB, majoring in engineering. [full story]
