SANTA MONICA, Calif.— A woman who was criti-cally wounded in last week’sSanta Monica shooting ram-page died Sunday, bringingthe total number of victimskilled by the gunman to five.Marcela Franco, 26, diedof her injuries at RonaldReagan UCLA MedicalCenter, according to SantaMonica College spokeswom-an Tricia Ramos.Franco had been a pas-senger in a Ford Explorerdriven by her father, cam-pus groundskeeper CarlosNavarro Franco, 68, whoalso was killed in Friday’sattack. They were going tothe school to buy textbooksfor classes the young womanwas enrolled in for the sum-mer, president Chui L. Tsangsaid in a statement posted onthe college’s website.“Her family was with herby her side” when she died,Tsang said.Investigators trying todetermine why the gunmanplanned the shooting spreewere focusing on a deadlyact of domestic violence thattouched off the mayhem.The heavily-armed man’sattack against his own fam-ily at their home led to theviolence in Santa Monicastreets, lasting just a matterof minutes until he was shotto death in a chaotic scene atthe college library by police.Investigators were look-ing at family connections tofind a motive because thekiller’s father and brotherwere the first victims, an offi-cial briefed on the probe whorequested anonymity becausehe wasn’t authorized to speakpublicly told The AssociatedPress.The killer, who died a dayshy of his 24th birthday, wasconnected to a home thatwent up in flames after thefirst shootings, said policeChief Jacqueline Seabrooks.Police were not namingthe shooter or the two menfound dead in the housebecause next of kin was outof the country and hadn’tbeen notified. Neighborsand colleagues of the boys’mother said she was visitingfamily in Lebanon.SWAT team officerssearched the mother’s LosAngeles apartment and offi-cers interviewed neighborsabout the son who lived withher, said Beverly Meadowswho lives in the adjoiningunit.Public records show thatMeadows’ neighbor is RandaAbdou, 54, the ex-wife of Samir Zawahri and formerco-owner of the house wherethe first shooting took place.Abdou wasn’t expect-ed home for another week,Meadows said. It wasn’t clearif the son who lived withAbdou was a victim or thesuspected gunman.Zawahri, 55, brought hisfamily to the neighborhood of small homes and apartmentbuildings tucked up againstInterstate 10 in the mid-1990s, according to propertyrecords.Not long after arriving onYorkshire Avenue, the cou-ple went through a difficultdivorce and split custody of their two boys, said ThomasO’Rourke, a neighbor.When the sons got older,one went to live with hismother while the other stayedwith the father.Standing next to the weap-ons and ammo found at mul-tiple crime scenes, Seabrookssaid at a Saturday news con-ference that the “cowardlymurderer” planned the attackand was capable of firing1,300 rounds.The killer had a run-inwith police seven years ago,but Seabrooks wouldn’t offermore details because he was a juvenile at the time.The gunman was enrolledat Santa Monica College in2010, Seabrooks said.After neighbors watchedCLEVELAND (AP) —These Ohio lotteries weredrawn Sunday:
