Father Of Isla Vista Shooter Meets With Victim's Dad

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Newly released photos show the June 1 meeting between the father of Elliot Rodger and father of a young man killed during his rampage.

Peter Rodger and Richard Martinez met just days after the murder spree in Isla Vista. These are the first photos showing the meeting between the two grieving fathers.

Martinez lost his son, Christopher, on May 23 when Elliot Rodger shot through the windows of the Isla Vista Deli Mart.

"We plan to work together so other families such as ours will not suffer as ours have," Martinez told NewsChannel earlier this month. "This was a private conversation between grieving fathers who've reached common ground."

The photos were released today by RALLY, an issue advocacy firm.
