Cyclist shot, wounded near scene of Santa Monica rampage

The Santa Monica neighborhood where a gunman went on a violent rampage Friday that left five people dead was jolted by another shooting Sunday in which one man was wounded, police said.

Police said a man was shot and wounded about 2 p.m. on Yorkshire Avenue, a few blocks north of the burned out home where Friday’s rampage began.

The latest shooting was believed to be gang-related and had no connection to Friday’s attack, authorities said.

Police are still investigating the Friday rampage, in which the gunman, John Zawahri, 23, left a burning home on Yorkshire Avenue near Kansas Avenue and cut a bloody path through the city’s normally quiet streets before ending up on the Santa Monica College campus, where he shot three people.


Inside the burned out home, authorities later found Zawahri’s father and his brother, both dead.

Zawahri was shot to death by police as he roamed the campus firing.

Oscar de la Torre, a member of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School Board, said Sunday’s victim, who was in his late 20s, was riding his bicycle when a car pulled up and someone inside fired three shots. He was hospitalized in stable condition, De la Torre said.
