Default At least five people reported killed in Tehama County shooting spree

A gunman armed with a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns went on a shooting spree Tuesday in a small Tehama County town, killing at least four people and wounding several others before officers shot and killed him.

At least two students at an elementary school were wounded by gunfire in Rancho Tehama Reserve, a community of about 1,500 people west of Corning in Tehama County, according to local media reports.

From CBS

Authorities say one of the four victims killed was a neighbor he was accused of assaulting in January, the Associated Press reports. Officials have yet to identify the gunman.

Johnston says the neighbor had a restraining order against the gunman. He says the neighbor was a woman but gave no other details.
Sounds like another domestic violence case and a shooter who should never have had a gun.

If it was a neighbor, why do you think it was domestic violence?

Sorry, NPR called it domestic violence (“California Shootings Sprung From Domestic Violence, Restraining Order”), so I assumed the person with the restraining order was the DV victim. But you’re right, no one seems to have confirmed yet which victim was who.


ETA-Snopes has more info.

Default Police: California man killed wife before gun rampage

A California man killed his wife and hid her body in his home before he went on a gun rampage and fatally shot four people, police have said.
"We believe that's probably what started this whole event," Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston told reporters on Wednesday.

Default Shooter in deadly California rampage wasn't allowed to have guns

A judge had barred the Northern California man who went on a deadly shooting rampage from having guns after he was charged with stabbing a neighbor earlier this year.

The court records show a judge ordering Neal to stay away from the woman who was stabbed and her mother-in-law on Feb. 28. As part of that protective order, Neal was barred from having guns.

Since we’re not going to do anything regarding gun control, maybe we should try to pass Wonderella’s Some Asshole Initiative. Or we can keep flags at permanent half mast and save flag raisers some trouble.

At the rate we seem to be having mass shootings, flags might be stuck at half mast anyway.

D'oh! Shooting rampage in California highlights "ghost guns" and their dangers

Kevin Janson Neal, 44, was armed with what authorities believe were two high-powered rifles that he made himself when he opened fire Tuesday on homes, cars and an elementary school around his tiny hometown of Rancho Tehama Reserve. A deputy finally shot and killed him.

It is the latest case of homemade semi-automatic weapons being used in a crime, and it comes as federal authorities try to draw attention to the dangers posed by these "ghost guns," which contain no registration numbers that can be used to trace them.

And it’s totally legal to just buy kits off the internet without a background check. Talk about a loophole.
