A Hollywood director and his family warned police about disturbing videos that discussed suicide and murder weeks before a shooting rampage they believe their son committed Friday near a Santa Barbara university that left seven people dead, including the attacker.

Alan Shifman, an attorney for director Peter Rodger, assistant director of The Hunger Games series, says the family has been told their son is dead after killing six people. Shifman says that the family has not yet seen his body.

Shifman said family members called police several weeks ago after being alarmed by YouTube videos “regarding suicide and the killing of people.” Police conducted an investigation and interviewed the man. Shifman said police did not find a history of guns, but did say the man had trouble making friends.

Investigators say they believe that a gunman driving a black BMW acted alone in the shootings late Friday night near the University of California-Santa Barbara.
