Recent school shootings in the US

Here’s a look at other recent school shootings throughout the country.

Rancho Tehama Elementary School, California

A man in Northern California went on a random shooting rampage on Nov. 14, killing five people and wounding at least a dozen adults and children before authorities shot and killed him.

The gunman, who was later identified as Kevin Neal, 44, rammed a car into the gates of Rancho Tehama Elementary School and shot at its portable classrooms. He repeatedly tried to get into a kindergarten classroom but quick-thinking staff locked the school down, and he eventually stormed off.

Neal reportedly targeted the elementary school as part of a long-running feud with neighbors.

Mattoon High School, Illinois

A male student shot and injured a fellow student at a central Illinois high school on Sept, 20. The shooting unfolded in Mattoon High School’s cafeteria around 11:30 a.m., officials said at the time.

The gunman was taken into custody shortly after the incident.

Freeman High School, Washington

A 15 year old student opened fire on fellow classmates at a Washington state high school on Sept. 13, killing one, investigators said. Caleb Sharpe, the suspected gunman, said the student who died had bullied him.

Three other students were wounded in the attack. According to court documents, Sharpe told officials that he brought the two guns to school to “teach everyone a lesson about what happens when you bully others.”
