A man took down four people and injured at least ten more during a deadly shooting spree in Rancho Tehama, California.
RANCHO TEHAMA, CALIFORNIA — Four are dead and many more injured after a man went on a murderous rampage through a rural Northern California town.
The Los Angeles Times reports that just before 8 a.m. on Tuesday, a gunman shot and killed a man and a female neighbor near his home in Rancho Tehama, before fleeing in a stolen truck.
The suspect went on a shooting spree through the community, opening fire at several locations, including an elementary school.
He carjacked another vehicle and went around firing shots at random, even shooting at a mother who was driving her son to school. All in all, the shooter killed 4 people and injured at least 10.
Local police eventually caught up to the suspect and shot him dead during an exchange of gunfire. He was found with a semiautomatic rifle and two handguns.
The gunman was later identified to be 43-year-old Kevin Neal, a local resident. No motive has been declared for the violent spree, but authorities believe the man may have been set off by a dispute with his neighbors.
