Native Mainer escapes Santa Monica shooter

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (NEWS CENTER) -- A native Mainer is among those who narrowly escaped being killed during the shooting rampage at Santa Monica College Friday.

Joe Orcutt, who grew up in Bucksport, now works in the bursar's office at Santa Monica College. On Friday, he came face to face with the gunman who killed 5 people before being shot dead by police at the college library.

Police say 23-year-old John Zawahri first killed his father and brother at their home before setting it on fire. He then carjacked a woman, demanded she drive to the college, and shot at a bus and into a neighborhood. Once at the Santa Monica campus, he shot a father and daughter, Carlos and Marcela Franco, in their SUV. Both have died. Zawahri walked around campus, shooting at anyone he saw, killing another unidentified woman before police killed him in the library.
