Dead, At Least 10 Wounded In North California Shooting

Children shot an Northern California elementary school

An area man identified as Brian Flint told reporter Jim Schultz that he had heard his neighbour was the shooter.

A father was dropping his daughter off for kindergarten at her Northern California elementary school Tuesday morning when he heard what sounded like a firecracker.

"They went around the community shooting at the schools!"

Detectives said they found the gunman's dead wife under the floor of their house, a day after he went on a shooting spree in Rancho Tehama Reserve, a small rural community 210 kilometers (130 miles) north of the state capital Sacramento.

Officials in Tehama County say they're investigating at least seven crime scenes, one of which is an elementary school.

"We are aware that there was a domestic violence incident as reported by neighbors involving the suspected shooter", Johnston said.

Neighbours said they had complained repeatedly about Neal shooting off rounds of gunfire from his home, despite a court order barring him from having firearms after he was accused of stabbing a neighbour in January.


Police from Red Bluff, investigators from the Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation and Tehama County District Attorney's Office, and California Highway Patrol officers are assisting across the "widespread scene", Johnston said. But when he could not get inside, he appeared frustrated and moved on, Johnston said.

Police believe Kevin Janson Neal shot her dead on Monday night, and waited until the next morning to continue his rampage armed with two semi-automatic rifles. Flint said the neighbor had been shooting "hundreds of rounds" from large magazines. "We made it aware that this guy is insane and he's been threatening us".

The resident lives less than a minute from the elementary school where the gunman opened fire.

Tello saw bullets hit the truck, so he made his children get down and put his own truck in reverse, he said. He was ultimately killed when law enforcement officers rammed his vehicle and exchanged fire with him, fatally wounding him about 25 minutes after the first 911 call came in.

The Corning Elementary School District said, "School staff is commended for their courageous and professional response to this awful incident". "The school was able to go on lockdown very quickly and effectively, which prevented any further injury or violence".

As terrible as it was, this week's shooting at a Northern California elementary school could have been a lot worse, if not for the actions of a custodian. He also said the head custodian asked Fitzpatrick not to give his name to the news media.

Claudette Wright said deputies responded to her calls, but the bad perception remains.
