Salon Meritage Shooting Memorial Flowers Candles Seal Beach

UGH! We are gutted!

This is so horrible and waaay too scary!

Scott Dekraai allegedly went berserk yesterday, storming into Seal Beach's Salon Meritage and killing eight people, including his ex-wife Michelle Dekraai. He left a ninth victim in critical condition.

Those in the community believe the rage erupted from a passionate court battle involving the custody of their seven-year-old son.

According to the police, Dekraai was found and arrested about a half-mile from the scene of the crime.

One of the salon's patrons at the the time, Cindy, reveals her experience:

We thought it was maybe firecrackers,. But he just didn’t stop. Anybody he saw he was shooting. It went boom, boom, boom. I was afraid he was going to shoot everybody.

Omg… we are literally getting goosebumps! Such a tragedy!

We can only imagine what it must be like for the friends and families of the victims, and the son! That poor little guy, our thoughts are with him as he deals with all of this.

Pictured above are candles and flowers that adorn the sidewalk memorial for the Salon Meritage victims.

    I have nothing against Perez but please get your facts correct. His wife was NOT killed in the attack; she ran to a back room with another person and locked the door; someone tried to get it but could not.

    My apologies, this was incorrectly reported by someone else. You are correct Perez. May they all RIP.

    Gutted? You have been watching too much UK X Factor…

    and you americans still think any old lunatic should be able to get a gun? theres a reason why these things keep happening in your country y' know…

    The shooter just finished a court ordered "Anger Management" class with shinny gold stars all over his completion certificate….

    Wait until this guy's history comes out. Nuts. There is so much misinformation out there right now. The media is reporting Michelle left him right after his tugboat accident. She had been trying to leave him for over a year, but he would hold a gun to his head whenever she said she was going to escape his physically abusive relationship. I wish he just did pull the trigger on himself years ago then my friends' lives would be spared.

    We all joked that this day would come…a sick way to cope with it…but never though it would and the piece of paper (restraining order) was not going to stop him.

    RIP Michelle, Laura, Victoria, Kristy, and the others who senselessly died because of this waste of space.

    You're not using "gutted" correctly - it means disappointed. You'd be "gutted" if you found out that your favorite show had been cancelled, not if a bunch of people had been murdered. Please stop trying to be cultured by using British slang, it's embarrassing to Americans.

    Typical man with control issues RIP to the victims and the loser husband should rot in hell.

  11. 11

    So sorry to hear about this, RIP to the victims and condolences and prayers to the friends and family members.

    May those poor people RIP! This is just wrong on so many levels.

    Re: electromouth – Oh please, shut up. Every time some lunatic goes on a rampage you have the American anti-gun hippies crying to ban guns..and then you have foreigners crying. Your crime rates are just as high as ours. Your murder,rape,robbery rates are just as high as ours..Guns make it easier but not having them banned does not -significantly reduce- crime rates. Theres a dozen gun stores in every city. Tons and tons of people own guns..how often do you hear about someone going on a shooting spree? Once in a blue moon..We have been killing each other way before guns even existed…Do not blame the gun..Blame the person. He could of EASILY went to homedepot and walmart and got the materials needed to make a BOMB which would of been way worse than a nutjob randomly firing..or he could of charged in with a knife, or bow and arrow, or crossbow, or even an airsoft rifle and done as much damage as with a gun…

    Re: electromouth – For public shooting sprees such as schools..Again, You can't blame the gun. Blame the lack of security, and the dozens of people that tell the news "oh we saw signs he was mentally off"..If anything, the government needs to implent a thing, where you can check to see if a person has purchased a gun recently. Such as "oh hey this guy is acting kookey let me go to this website to see if he purchased a gun" "OH HE HAS ONE WEEK AGO..Why would a college student need a 9mm" "I better call the cops" ..Simple as that. Guns should be a TAD bit harder to get..similar to that of a class 3 weapons license. But simply wanting guns to be banned will cause MORE HARM than good.

    Why don't these fucked up people just kill themselves, why do they have to kill innocent people because they're all sorts of fucked up?
