Killer Goes on Shooting Spree in Rural Northern California, Killing 4

Killer Goes on Shooting Spree in Rural Northern California, Killing 4

An area man identified as Brian Flint told reporter Jim Schultz that he had heard his neighbour was the shooter. This shooting comes only eight days after 26 people were gunned down inside a church in rural Texas, just 43 days since 58 people were murdered at a Las Vegas concert and just one month shy of the fifth anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that left 20 children dead.

Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said deputies had tried to contact Neal but he wouldn't answer his door and Johnston said deputies couldn't find him.

According to the CBS affiliate KHSL-TV, the shooting took place in the community of Rancho Tehama, about 15 miles southwest of Red Bluff, around 8:00 a.m.

Chillingly, Johnston said that the attack "could have been so much worse", because the gunman had apparently sought to enter the school while it was filled with children.

When police showed up Tuesday and spoke to neighbors, they reported thinking "there was a domestic violence incident" involving the couple Monday, though that had not been called in to authorities, Johnston said. The wound of the child in the vehicle was not serious, but his mother's injuries are life threatening, Johnston said. No students or staff were killed, said Superintendent Rich DuVarney of the county education department.

"We've made it aware that this guy has been insane and he's been threatening us", the man said.

"The insane thing is the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately - hundreds of rounds, large magazines", Flint said.

Joseph Raven was doing tile work with a co-worker at a Rancho Tehama home when the shooting started.

Flint said his truck was stolen and his roommate was shot and killed by the alleged shooter whom he described as "Kevin", a known felon in his 50s.

However, because school officials had heard gunfire that morning, they hurried children and teachers inside and locked the school down, which kept the gunman outside, Johnston said. The Tehama County Sheriff's Office did not immediately respond to HuffPost's request for comment.

Tello saw bullets hit the truck, so he made his children get down and put his own truck in reverse, he said.

"School staff is commended for their courageous and professional response to this awful incident", the statement read.

More than 100 law enforcement officers were on scene. "The school was able to go on lockdown very quickly and effectively, which prevented any further injury or violence".

That's when Fitzpatrick said the hero custodian went into action.

Another resident with a baby, Casey Burnett, said she saw the gunman driving around the area, shooting randomly from his auto.
