A small town's grief is echoed by these candles and flowers. It was here a gunman went on a rampage, killing six people and injuring at least 13. A student was shot and killed outside of this Deli Mart. A young man known by the owner. (SOUNDBITE) (English) SAM HASSAN, OWNER OF DELI WHERE STUDENT WAS KILLED, SAYING: "It's sad, you cry. Every time I look at the news I cry because you know it's like it's your kid, it's your friend, it's your buddy that you just talked to and you saw. And you know I saw his dad yesterday on TV, and I just cried with him, I have kids also so it was hard." A father of a student who was at the store no more than ten minutes before the shooting occurred, arrived to pay his respects. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MICHAEL STEIN, PARENT OF UCSB STUDENT, SAYING: "You start seeing baby pictures in your head, you start seeing home movies, you start remembering birthday parties, you start thinking about graduations and all the things that for a daughter who's about to turn 21 in October may have lost and I don't know how, I guess it's Mr. Martinez, the gentleman who lost his son, you know they always say time heals all wounds and you'll live on, I don't know how." After the killing spree, officers found the gunman -- Elliot Rodger -- with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
