RANCHO TEHAMA, CALIFORNIA โ€” Four are dead and many more injured after a man went on a murderous rampage through a rural Northern California town.

The Los Angeles Times reports that just before 8 a.m.

on Tuesday, a gunman shot and killed a man and a female neighbor near his home in Rancho Tehama, before fleeing in a stolen truck.

The suspect went on a shooting spree through the community, opening fire at several locations, including an elementary school.

He carjacked another vehicle and went around firing shots at random, even shooting at a mother who was driving her son to school.

All in all, the shooter killed 4 people and injured at least 10.

Local police eventually caught up to the suspect and shot him dead during an exchange of gunfire.

He was found with a semiautomatic rifle and two handguns.

The gunman was later identified to be 43-year-old Kevin Neal, a local resident.

No motive has been declared for the violent spree, but authorities believe the man may have been set off by a dispute with his neighbors..
