ALGER, Wash. (AP) - The mother of the suspect in a deadly
rampage in Washington state describes her son as "desperately
mentally ill."
Dennise Zamora says she has tried repeatedly to get help for her
28-year-old son Isaac.
He surrendered after shootings left six people dead, including a
sheriff's deputy. A state trooper and another person were wounded.
The two and a-half hour rampage started in the small town of
Alger (AL'-jur), and continued onto Interstate 5, the state's
busiest highway.
Isaac Zamora was recently freed from jail after serving six
months for drug possession and was under community supervision by
corrections officers. He had reported as instructed and passed drug
and alcohol tests.
Washington state's governor has called for an independent review
of the case.
