A college student shot during a gunman's rampage in Santa Monica, California, died on Sunday, the school said, two days after her father and three other people were killed in the same attack.

Marcela Dia Franco, 26, was one of the final victims of the gunman's spree, which began on Friday morning when he fatally shot his brother and father and apparently set their house on fire, police said.

Police on Sunday formally released the identity of the suspected gunman as John Zawahri, 23. He was killed at Santa Monica College by police ending the rampage on Friday, one day shy of his 24th birthday.

Police also named four of the five victims: Samir Zawahri, 55, the suspect's father; Christopher Zawahri, 24, the suspect's brother; Marcela Dia Franco, 26; and Carlos Franco, 68. A fifth victim, a woman fatally shot outside the college library, has not been officially identified.
