California gunman’s wife found dead in home, authorities say

FOX NEWS reports that the wife of the California gunman whose Tuesday rampage involved seven shooting locations — including an elementary school — also was killed during the seemingly random spree of terror, and police believe her death may have spurred the rest of the slaughter.

Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said Wednesday authorities found the body of Kevin Neal’s wife in the floorboards inside their home. Neal’s shooting spree killed five and injured 14 others. Neal was ultimately killed in a shootout with police.

“The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, lots of magazines. we made it a way that this guy has been crazy, he’s been threatening us,” said neighbor Brian Flint.

The shooting spree in Rancho Tehama that has left 5 people dead Tuesday morning is believed to have started near the gunman’s residence on Bobcat Lane.

Action News Now reporters spoke with several people today who were acquainted with the gunman, Kevin Jansen Neal.

They described the rampage as having begun near the man’s residence after an argument broke out with a neighbor.

One man tells us that he and the now deceased neighbor were planning to go on a fishing trip today; he was actually headed over to the home on bobcat lane when he heard what had happened.

The roommate of he deceased says they’ve been hearing gunshots go off at Neal’s house at all hours of the night, for months now.
