IV Shooter's Father Interviewed by Barbara Walters
updated: Jun 26, 2014, 12:04 PM

By the Dedicated Staff of edhat.com

Peter Rodger, the father of Elliot Rodger who went on a murder-spree killing six people and wounding 13 in Isla Vista last month, agreed to be interviewed by Barbara Walters. ABC News has released video clips of the exclusive interview that will air on Friday at 10 pm as a special edition of "20/20."

Peter Rodgers stated he never thought his son could hurt a flea and he had never shown any violent tendencies. "We didn't see this coming at all," Rodger said. View the video below provided by ABC News.

Recently the parents of three victims, Elliot Rodger's roommates and their friend, have spoken out asking for more information. In an interview with the Washington Post the parents expressed frustration with the Santa Barbara Sheriff's Office for the lack of details and explanation over their sons' deaths.

"How did one boy do this? Our sons, there were three of them... We wonder, were our boys drugged?" said Junan Chen, the father of George Chen. The parents were allowed to visit the crime scene in the shared apartment and felt there were few signs of a struggle or that the struggle was confined to a small space.

Santa Barbara Sheriff Public Information Officer Kelly Hoover provided a written statement saying, "The Sheriff's Office owes it to the victim's families and to the public to not prematurely release information before we have all of the facts in this case." A full report and the coroner's findings are expected to be released in a few weeks.
