If Samir and Randa Zawahri have a son, that's the probable culprit behind the mass shooting in Santa Monica this afternoon. The property located at 2036 Yorkshire Ave, Santa Monica, California - where the fire occurred - is owned by Samir S. Zawahri:


2036 Yorkshire Avenue
Santa Monica, CA 90404
Owner: SAMIR ZAWAHRI
Total land value: $142,546
Total building value: $73,525
Total value for property: $216,071
Recording date: 06/04/2003
Year built: 1940
Effective year built: 1940
Area of property: 1,226 square feet
Assessment for fiscal year: 2008/2009

The Arabic surname could be telltale IMHO.

Notably, Samir Zawahri was/is an avid amateur radio operator....useful for international communication.




***UPDATE***

Apparently the pair killed at 2036 Yorkshire Avenue were the father and brother of the assailant. Samir and Randa have been in the midst of a bitter divorce. From L.A. Weekly Blog:

At 11:52 a.m. authorities received a report of shots fired along with a fire at a home at 2036 Yorkshire Avenue in Santa Monica, where "multiple" victims were found dead inside, Santa Monica Fire Department Chief Scott Ferguson told reporters.

Reports suggest that the victims were the father and brother of the suspect; neighbors told Fox 11 News that the home was the site of a bitter divorce.

It is noteworthy that the police and media have not released the name of the shooter given how easily his family name is found. What are authorities seeking to hide?





***UPDATE*** 6/8/13

A poster has left the following comment:

I used to go to Sunday school with to Lebanese boys who lived on that street, Chris and John Zawahri. When I made the connection it left me sick. After some google searches of "zawahri" and "santa monica" I came across this. You pretty much confirmed what I had already believed.

Lord, please don't let this be true.

Thus, the name of the shooter is either Chris or John Zawahri. Whichever one is the shooter, the other is the brother who was killed.

Looks like the family is Lebanese.

Obviously I flavored this post to imply the possibility of Islamic terrorism, however, to be honest I think this is most likely someone that flipped out because of his parents' divorce and underlying mental illness. We'll soon find out...

The surname isn't an Islamic one; it's Christian, FYI

TTGEOTT said...

but the name is so close to bin Laden's #2 that the right-wing sites are already calling this a "jihadist" attack (some of them are)

Neal, I know it's difficult now but you have you thought of contacting some news agencies with your info?

Regarding the comment "Notably, Samir Zawahri was/is an avid amateur radio operator....useful for international communication."

While that statement is true on its face, the implication being drawn or hinted at is decidedly false.

Samir Zawhari' amateur radio callsign is N6KXL. He holds a Technician class license, which is of close to zero use for international communications, and ther is no Ham Radio logbook activity to indicate that he used his amateur radio equipment to communicate outside of California. Most Technician class hams use local club repeater systems to chat with other hams while they are driving.

Samir was a member of the Balwin Hills Amateur Radio Club and is listed as the "Refreshment Manager" for club meetings. This is the guy who brings donuts to the meetings, NOT a shadowy terrorist.
