The family home of school shooter Nathaniel Berhow is seen in Santa Clarita, Calif., Nov. 15, 2019. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Berhow died about 3:30 p.m. Friday at a hospital with his mother present.
A teenage shooter who opened fire at his high school in Southern California this week, and then turned the gun on himself, died from his wounds Friday afternoon. Police said Nathaniel Berhow, 16, died at a hospital with his mother at his side.
Berhow shot five fellow students Thursday at his high school in Santa Clarita with a 45-caliber semiautomatic pistol, killing a 15-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy. Berhow, whose 16th birthday was the day of the shooting, saved the last bullet for himself, shooting himself in the head.
Captain Kent Wegener of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's homicide unit told reporters Friday that police had so far been unable to determine Berhow's motive, even after carrying out more than 40 interviews. He said no manifesto or suicide note had been found.
Berhow opened fire in an outdoor plaza at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, about 65 kilometers (40 miles) north of Los Angeles.
