(NEWSER) – Police say seven people are dead and another seven injured after a series of drive-by shootings near UC Santa Barbara last night, reports KEYT-TV. Police are still unraveling what happened during the 10-minute rampage in the Isla Vista neighborhood, but they say the suspect is among the dead. Witnesses reported seeing a black BMW speeding around spraying bullets at multiple locations, beginning about 9:30pm, reports AP. The Santa Barbara County sheriff said the driver exchanged fire with deputies before crashing into a parked car, and was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head. It wasn't clear whether it was self-inflicted.
