Children return to school after mass shooting in northern California

RANCHO TEHAMA, Calif. (WHDH) — Children in northern California returned to school on Monday after a deadly shooting two weeks ago.

The gunman killed five people, including his wife and injured eight other people. He also used his car as a weapon to ram it into other vehicles and was seen getting out of his car to shoot people inside their cars.

Alejandro Hernandez, 6, was shot in the foot and his right lung. His mother, Angelica Monroy, said doctors told her if he had been hit from the side, he would have been killed. She said her son is too afraid to go back to schoo. once he is done recovering.

Monroy said her family will be moving because the memories of the shooting are too painful for them.

Convicted mass killer Charles Manson hospitalised in California

LOS ANGELES – Charles Manson, the cult leader who sent followers known as the ‘Manson Family’ out to commit gruesome murders, shattering the peace-and-love ethos of the 1960s hippie era in California, has been hospitalised, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Manson, 83, was in a Bakersfield, California hospital and his condition was unclear, the Los Angeles Times reported, citing Kern County Sheriff’s lieutenant Bill Smallwood.

A spokeswoman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation declined to comment to the Los Angeles Times.

She cited privacy laws that preclude the agency “from commenting on protected health information for any inmate in our custody,” the newspaper reported.

State and local officials were not immediately available for comment to Reuters.

Manson, who was serving a life term for orchestrating one of the most notorious crimes in US history, had been imprisoned for more than 45 years at California State Prison, Corcoran.

California Shooter Kevin Neal Hid His Wife’s Dead Body Under Floor Before Mass Shooting

California gunman Kevin Jansen Neal killed his wife and hid her body under the floor before killing four more people on a shooting spree Tuesday using a gun that he should not have been able to acquire, authorities said Wednesday. 

Authorities found Neal’s wife’s body inside a hole in the floor of their Rancho Tehama home. Neal, 43, killed his wife Monday before the rampage the following day that ranged across the community and targeted a school, where two children were wounded.

Officers found a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns with Neal on Tuesday. At a press conference Wednesday, police said that Neal’s wife got a restraining order against him in February that should have kept him from owning guns. They also provided details about the grisly under-floor find.
