The father of Santa Barbara mass shooter Elliot Rodger tells Barbara Walters he “didn’t see this coming.”

During a “20/20” interview that was previewed on Thursday, Peter Rodger explained that he’s living a “reverse nightmare” in the wake of his son’s horrific actions.

“Now I go to sleep, I might have a nice dream,” said Rodger. “And then I wake up and it’s, slowly, the truth of what happened dawns on me. And you know, that is that my son was a mass murderer.”
