A gunman was killed by police after he fired shots from an elevated position at a luxury apartment complex in downtown Reno, Nev., shortly before 7 p.m. Tuesday, police said. Barricaded in a room on the eighth floor of the high-rise building, the shooter sent bullets raining onto the street below.

No other casualties have been reported, except for a woman who was injured in the hand, the Sparks Police Department said in a news release. She did not need medical treatment.

Few details about the incident were available Tuesday night. Neither the identity of the shooter nor the intended target was known.

Tuesday’s shooting at the Montage complex came less than two months after Stephen Paddock killed 58 people and injured

Vegas mass-shooting survivor killed in hit-and-run – WSAZ

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — A man who survived the Oct. 1 mass shooting that killed 58 concert-goers and injured hundreds in Las Vegas has been killed in a hit-and-run in southern Nevada.

Roy McClellan of Las Vegas was killed Nov. 17 while hitchhiking on State Route 160 in Pahrump, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) west of Las Vegas.

His widow, Denise McClellan, told KSNV-TV she can’t understand why her 52-year-old husband survived the shooting, only to die in a hit-and-run. She says the mass shooting “was messing with his head” and that he was undergoing therapy.

The Nevada Highway Patrol says it is seeking the driver of a Chevrolet Camaro with front-end damage.

Stephen Paddock unleashed gunfire at an outdoor music festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino before killing himself.

Christian Father Still Grateful After Daughter Killed In Texas Church Mass Shooting

The Texas community stricken by the mass shooting at Sutherland First Baptist Church says it is still finding reasons to be thankful during the holiday season. 

Pastor Frank Pomeroy, who lost his 14-year-old daughter Annabelle Pomeroy in the November shooting that left 26 people dead, said there is a lot to be grateful for this Thanksgiving, like the support provided to the Texas town in the days after the tragedy.

“Is it going to be difficult? Yes, but you know what? I am celebrating this great country that God has blessed us with on Thanksgiving, and also celebrating the birth of the savior at Christmas,” Pomeroy told NBC News.

Other churches in the community and people across the world have reached out to Pomeroy to provide support. A local pastor, Paul Buford, wrote a special sermon focused on grief

‘Only’ five people killed in a mass shooting? Hooray

To the editor: The headline for this article in your print editing read, “Rampage ‘could have been so much worse.’ ” (“Terror in Northern California town as gunman goes on rampage, kills 4,” Nov. 15)

The idea that we should be grateful that the gunman, after killing his wife and hiding her body, killed “only” four more innocents is so terribly sad and noteworthy. This new normal of regular violence does not scare us enough, so we just accept it as part of being an American.

We stand up for many things in this country with great passion, as we should. But as long as we allow the Republican Party to repeat its tired mantra of “this isn’t the time to talk about gun control,” nothing will change.

Our children deserve to live in a safe world. The headline should have said, “More innocent victims died” and noted that it happened

California mass shooting suspect killed wife, hid body day before rampage, officials say – WBIR

RANCHO TEHAMA RESERVE, Calif. — The day before a man went on a shooting spree at seven sites in this Northern California community, he killed his wife in their home and cut a hole in the floor to hide her body, sheriff’s officials said Wednesday.

The killing of the woman, whose name has not been released, raises the death toll to five at the hands of suspect Kevin Janson Neal, 43, who also is dead.

Two Tehama County sheriff’s deputies killed him Tuesday in a shootout after they rammed his vehicle as he fled one of the crime scenes.

“He shot her at some point, probably late Monday,  … put her body in

First picture of gunman who killed four and injured 10 in mass shooting at school

This is the gunman who killed four people and injured 10 others including children at a school before he was shot dead by police in California.

Kevin Neal, 43, has been named as the mass killer who carried out the latest atrocity to leave Americans discussing gun control.

Prosecutors confirmed he was already facing a number of serious charges including assault with a deadly weapon after a domestic incident in February.

But Neal managed to pay $160,000 (£121,000) to get bailed and was free to carry out the appalling attack on Tuesday.

Police are still trying to piece together exactly how the horror unfolded, but the shooting began sometime around 8am near Neal’s home in the rural town of Rancho Tehama.

Multiple People Killed in Northern California Mass Shooting

At least five people are dead, including the shooter, after a 14 November 2017 mass shooting attack in Rancho Tehama, California.

Authorities said that they were investigating multiple crime scenes, including the local elementary school. At least two children were reported among the 10 people who were injured and hospitalized.

Rancho Tehama is a small community about 120 miles northwest of Sacramento, the state capital.

Tahoma County Undersheriff Phil Johnston said that a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns were recovered from the scene. Both are thought to have been used by the suspected gunman. Authorities have not released the alleged gunman’s identity, but a local man, Brian Flint, identified himself as the man’s neighbor, saying:

The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines. We made it aware that this guy is crazy and he’s been threatening
