LOS ANGELES, 15 November (BelTA - Xinhua) - At least five were killed, including the suspect, in a shooting near an elementary school Tuesday morning in Rancho Tehama, a rural and small community of California, about 194 km north of the state capital Sacramento.

The tragedy happened around 8:00 a.m. (1600 GMT) Tuesday, leaving five dead and 10 wounded, including two children.

According to the local Redding Record Searchlight newspaper, the fatal incident stemmed from a domestic violence, and the murderer drove out of home after a quarrel in the morning, then shot at people along street.

Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston confirmed to reporters that the shooter picked up targets randomly, leaving several shooting scenes and multiple victims. He fired multiple shots at the elementary school, which was his third stop.

Johnston said police officials heard the shots near the school and immediately went there and locked it down. The shooter, identified by the Sacramento Bee newspaper as 43-year-old Kevin Janson Neal, found he could not get into the school, then shot 20 to 30 rounds at the school.
