ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston identified the Northern California gunman suspect as Kevin Janson Neal and said the shooter's wife's dead body was found Tuesday night under the floorboards in his home. "She was an obvious victim of several gunshot wounds," Johnston said on Wednesday. "We believe that's what probably started this whole event." Neal allegedly was carrying two semi-automatic rifles opened fire at multiple locations across a small Northern California community on Tuesday, killing five people before he was slain by police. At least 10 other people were injured, including four children wounded at an elementary school near the small town of Corning, about 100 miles (160 km) north of Sacramento, where the suspect was slain, according to police and local media. "Deeply saddened to hear of the shooting in Northern California, the loss of life, including innocent children," Vice President Mike Pence said on Twitter. "We commend the effort of courageous law enforcement. We'll continue to monitor the situation & provide federal support, as we pray for comfort & healing for all impacted." Shots were fired at Rancho Tehama Elementary school where some people were injured there but no students or staff members died, authorities said.
