5 dead after shooting at elementary school in Northern California

Ten people have been hospitalized, authorities say.

Authorities and witnesses said he appeared to pick targets randomly, driving around the community and shooting at people from his vehicle before landing at the Rancho Tehama Elementary School, which immediately began its lockdown procedures and prevented him from entering the building. A woman driving the truck was also shot; all three are being treated.

School officials" swift decision to lock the doors after hearing gunfire was "monumental' in saving the lives of countless children, Johnston said. When he would call the family in a rage, upset over something, they would tell him to go to a mental health facility and that he needed medication.

"There are certain people that do not need guns and my brother was clearly one of them", she said.

The first calls about the shooting came in shortly before 8 a.m. local time on Tuesday, Johnston told reporters.

In all, the gunman's rampage involved seven shooting scenes. According to police, it appears that the shooter was randomly picking targets. No one was killed there.

Johnston said the gunman, apparently frustrated, left the school grounds and resumed his random shooting before crashing the vehicle.

"Every time we responded, we would try to make contact with Mr. Neal", Johnston said.




He said the suspect has been identified, but his name has not been released pending notification of next-of-kin.

A semi-automatic rifle and two handguns believed to be used by the gunman have been recovered, according to Johnston.

Jeanine Quist, an administrative assistant with the Corning Union Elementary School District, says no one was killed at the school but a "number" of students were shot and wounded. "He'd go off the hinges", she said.

"He'd go off the hinges", she said.

Police believe it was the feud that may have fueled the spree, CNN reported. The neighbor was slightly injured, she said. "He was not law enforcement friendly". Johnston said there were more than 100 officers helping cover the multiple scenes.

It's not yet clear what the terms of Neal's bail were, and whether he would have been allowed to possess and fire the weapons on his property at the end of a dirt road in Rancho Tehama Reserve.

The gunman was stopped from going on a Sandy Hook-like massacre of school children on Tuesday after staff at the Rancho Tehama Elementary School quickly put the building into lockdown. It had a population of just 1,485 at the 2010 census.
