"The question as to whether video games ( or computers, or televisions, or what have you ) are good for you or bad for you all by themselves is actually meaningless. Technologies have effects, and different ones, only as they are situated within specific contexts. So we always have to ask how the technology was used and in what context it was being used."
TUSTIN, Calif. (AP) — A woman who was the first of three people killed in a gunman’s rampage has been identified, but her relationship to the shooter — a videogame-playing loner — remained unknown Wednesday, authorities said.
Courtney Aoki, 20, of Buena Park was shot multiple times early Tuesday in the home that gunman Ali Syed, 20, shared with his parents, said Orange County sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino.
But beyond that, authorities know little about her, including how she got there, her occupation, and how she knew Syed, Amormino said.
Syed, a part-time community college student who ultimately committed suicide, was a loner and a “gamer,” Amormino said.
“He spent a lot of time alone in his room playing video games,” he said.
A 12-gauge shotgun used in the killings belonged to Syed and was purchased by his father, he said.
The rampage began before dawn Tuesday at the home inLadera Ranch and ended 25 miles to the north during the early morning rush hour, police said.
Syed killed two more people during carjackings, injured at least three more, and shot up cars zooming down a busy freeway interchange before committing suicide with his shotgun as police closed in, authorities said.
The shooter forced one commuter stopped at a stop sign out of his BMW, marched him to a curb and shot him three times from behind as shocked witnesses looked on,Tustin police Chief Scott Jordan said.
The motive for the shootings remained unclear.
Syed had no criminal history and no history of mental illness or mental disability, said Lt. Paul Garaven, a Tustin police spokesman.
