    to last night's breaking news about the mass shooting in Pasadena.  One victim has been identified.

    According to Pasadena police Chief Phillip Sanchez, Smith was armed with a semiautomatic rifle. He chased two women who ran out of a home, killing one and wounding the other.

    "That is a deliberate act, apparently it's cowardly," Sanchez said. "He used a firearm to kill individuals who weren't armed and couldn't defend themselves. They had to run, literally, for their lives."

    Investigators said Smith was a renter and was having a dispute with his landlord. He barricaded himself in a home at Summit Avenue and Penn Street. He was taken into custody after a 911 dispatcher and a crisis negotiator convinced him to surrender over the phone.

    The body of the man in his 70s was found inside a home. Aguiar and the Good Samaritan were gunned down in the street.

    Fuck that "responsible gun owner".
