The latest names to be released — Cheng Yuan Hong, 20, of San Jose; George Chen, 19, of San Jose; and Weihan Wang, 20, of Fremont — were stabbed multiple times in unit No. 7 of a two-story, charcoal gray building on Seville Road. Authorities say 22-year-old Elliot Rodger attacked them before going on a rampage through Isla Vista, killing three more people before taking his own life.
All three were students at UC Santa Barbara, and Hong and Chen were roommates. It’s unclear whether Wang also was a roommate or was just visiting, officials said in a release. the apartment was “a horrific crime scene,” Sheriff Bill Brown said.
