NORTHERN CALIFORNIA– Authorities have discovered that the shooter responsible for killing 4 people in Northern California had also taken the life of his wife.
Kevin Neal has been identified as the man who shot and killed 4 people on Tuesday. The total death toll is now at six with the addition to his wife and himself. He was shot and killed by police following the shooting. The body of his wife, whose name has not yet been released, was discovered underneath the floor of their home.
Police suspect that Neal began the killing spree by shooting his wife first, and then proceeding to take the lives of the four people.
During the shooting spree, Neal stole a pickup truck and fired his assault rifle out of the window for over 25 minutes at those standing on the street. The gunman then arrived at Rancho Tehama Elementary School where teachers had already took action due to them hearing gunfire nearby.
Neal rammed the truck through the locked gate of the elementary school, exited the car, and began to fire through the windows and walls of the school. One child was hurt and is in stable condition.
