Authorities say the wife of a gunman who went on a shooting rampage in Rancho Tehama was found dead inside their home. Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston says investigators found the body of Kevin Janson Neal’s wife hidden under the floor. Investigators believe the killing of his wife was the start of the rampage and they say there would have been “a horrific bloodbath” at Rancho Tehama Elementary School if not for the quick action of workers who rushed children inside and locked the doors as Neal opened fire. Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said Wednesday that not being able to enter the school frustrated Kevin Neal and drove him to find victims elsewhere. He killed five people and wounded 10 at different locations around Rancho Tehama Reserve before police fatally shot him. Some students had finished breakfast while others were being dropped off when Neal started shooting. The school will be closed until further notice. A judge had barred Neal from having guns after he was charged with stabbing a woman earlier this year. Court records also show that Neal was charged with illegally firing a weapon and possessing an illegal assault rifle on Jan. 31. The 44-year-old was charged with five felonies and two misdemeanors. 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. Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said Wednesday that police went to Neal’s home several times for reports that he was shooting guns, but they never saw him with the weapons. He says Neal had two homemade semi-automatic weapons and two handguns registered in someone else’s name.
