An attorney for the Rodger Family has confirmed to reporters that the UCSB shooter responsible for six deaths and seven injuries is indeed 22-year-old Elliot Rodger, the son of "Hunger Games" assistant director Peter Rodger.

Additionally, the attorney said that the family had called the police a month ago expressing concern over Elliot's YouTube videos and their messages "regarding suicide and the killing of people." The attorney said they had otherwise known Elliot as a "perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human."

"We offer our deepest compassion and sympathy to the families involved in this terrible tragedy," Mr. Shifman said in a statement on behalf of the Rodger family according to the New York Times. "We are experiencing the most inconceivable pain, and our hearts go out to everyone involved."
