Default California gunman tried to access classrooms to kill children, police say

School officials are bein' hailed as heroes for their quick thinking that prolly saved lives.

Although I'm sure they had nothin' to worry 'bout since the school is a gun-free zone. The shooter woulda saw the sign, turned, and walked away without harming anyone.

California gunman tried to access classrooms to kill children, police say | Fox News

The gunman who killed four people and wounded at least 10 others, including two children, in Northern California Tuesday tried to access rooms at an elementary school to shoot more kids as part of a "bizarre and murderous rampage," police said at a press conference Tuesday night.

The shooter was killed by police after he opened fire at multiple “random” locations near Rancho Tehama Elementary School in Corning early Tuesday.

Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said that one of the victims was a woman the gunman stabbed in January.

School officials heard shots being fired about a quarter-mile away and the school went into lockdown mode, Johnston said. He added the incident "could have been much worse if it wasn't for the quick thinking" of the school's staff, who put the school in immediate lockdown mode without instruction from police.

Johnston noted it was "monumental" that school workers took action when they did, because he believes they saved the lives of countless children.

The assistant sheriff said the gunman rammed his vehicle into a school fence, then walked onto school grounds with a semi-automatic rifle while wearing a protective vest.

After being unable to access classrooms due to the lockdown, it's believed the gunman became "frustrated" and went back to his car, and began shooting at people while driving, according to police.

"This guy was bent on driving by residences and arbitrarily shooting at them," Johnston said of the gunman. "This guy was on a killing rampage, he was driving up and down the street shooting at passerbys [sic], and uninvolved residences."

A mother, who said she doesn't know the gunman but was just driving past him with her three children, was shot. One of the children received a non-life-threatening injury, according to police. However, it's unclear if she was the victim of a gunshot wound or if she was hit with shrapnel from a bullet-riddled car door.

“This is an individual that armed himself I think with the motive of getting even with his neighbors, and when it went that far, he just went on a rampage," Johnston added of the shooter, noting he doesn't think there is any connection to terrorism.

Investigators recovered a semi-automatic riflle, in addition to two handguns. Johnston said there's another weapon in the suspect's crashed vehicle which authorities have not yet recovered.

The officer noted there was a restraining order against the shooter, which he said would've limited his ability to possess firearms for a period of time, depending on the order.

More than 100 police officers are investigating seven different shooting scenes in the area.

Brian Flint told Record Searchlight newspaper after the incident that his neighbor was the gunman in Tuesday’s deadly shooting.

"The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines," Flint said. "We made it aware that this guy is crazy and he's been threatening us." He added the suspect stole his truck.

Witnesses at the school described multiple rounds being fired. Coy Ferreira told KRCR he was dropping off his daughter at the school just before 8 a.m. when he heard a firecracker-like sound. The school’s secretary then ran out and told children to go inside because there was an active shooter. Ferreira said he ended up in a classroom with 14 students and witnessed a boy being struck by bullets.

The Tehama County Sheriff's Office has asked the Department of Justice to investigate the shooting, Johnston told KRCR. He added the FBI volunteered to investigate, as well.

Gov. Jerry Brown said in a statement that he and his wife are "saddened to hear about today's violence in Tehama County, which shockingly involved schoolchildren. We offer our condolences to the families who lost loved ones and unite with all Californians in grief."

Vice President Mike Pence tweeted his condolences for the lives lost in the shooting, and said "We commend the effort of courageous law enforcement. We'll continue to monitor the situation & provide federal support, as we pray for comfort & healing for all impacted."

Those gun-free zone signs need to be done in at least four languages, with flashing red lights.

Another left wing Trump hater gone mad man.

That is the problem with the left and gun ownership. They are not stable enough to know that you don't just shoot up the neighborhood because Trump won and now you don't get what you wanted....

One more example of the government failing to do it's job. This is the same government that the left believes will defend us if the 2nd Amendment were repealed.

I'm thinking you may encounter resistance to that idea.

Here's a thought... you go on and collect them from all the criminals first, and perhaps we'll consider the idea.

And none of this was a problem until the country elected Trump and the media has promoted HATE TRUMP.

The left wing is THE PROBLEM here. NOT OUR GUN RIGHTS.

The fric'in media that promotes the idea our President is not worth spit is the fuqing problem. Unstable Democrats left winger are to unhinged, to mentally unstable to be able to handle the truth that America is not about to be "changed" by left wingers who are funded by the likes of George Soros and company.

SO you left wing types better do some thing before we have a revolution and we see how many we can kill of the opposite political parties.

Your side will loose big time.

Yet again I wish we could just live with the lefties in the nation. Especially since we can't just shoot them. OF course in a revolution there are essentially no rules.

So go ahead and live to promote Trump hate. Watch what it does to our country and how many might die in the process.

Regards, Kirk

I didn't say that

it's what it's been since the bush years; an increase of persuasion on congress from the NRA. since obama and now with trump the alt right has manned the add campaigns.
and btw if you and I get along with each other, it's not good for sales.
