Twisted Santa’s revenge leaves eight people dead

Eight people have been killed and three others injured at a Christmas party near Los Angeles in the US.

A gunman dressed in a Santa Claus costume entered the party on Christmas Eve and opened fire before setting the house on fire.

Police say the suspect, Bruce Pardo, had no criminal record and no history of violence, but the motive of his actions may be revenge after a painful divorce.

The victims have not yet been identified as it’s even hard to determine who were shot dead and who were killed by the flames, but it’s believed that all of them are relatives of Prado’s ex-wife. The woman herself is till missing.

The forty-five year old gunman later committed suicide.
