A 22-year-old man who killed six people in a violent rampage in California convinced police he was not a threat to others in a meeting prior to the attack, officials said Sunday.A local mental health department official requested law enforcement carry out a welfare check on Rodger following the tip-off, and sheriff's deputies visited the troubled man, Brown told CNN on Sunday.At the time, there were no grounds for placing Rodger on an involuntary hold, an order which allows authorities to commit individuals to a mental health facility for further observation, Brown said.Rodger stabbed to death three men in his apartment, before going on a shooting spree nearby and killing two young women and another young man. Another 13 people were wounded in the attack, two of whom remain in "serious condition," Brown told CBS.
