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 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.The gunman then hijacked a woman's car, forcing her at gunpoint to drive toward Santa Monica College while he fired at people through the window, they said.

Franco was being driven by her father to the college campus to pick up textbooks for her summer classes when the gunman shot at their vehicle.

Her father, Carlos Navarro Franco, a groundskeeper at the college, died at the scene, and she was critically wounded.

Another woman was fatally shot outside the college library.

The gunman, who authorities said was a day shy of his 24th birthday, was shot and killed by police.
