Kevin Neal, 43, was described as ‘crazy’ by his neighbor and had been firing lots of bullets.

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

Kevin Neal managed to pay $160,000 as bail and was free to carry out the distressing attack on Tuesday.

The shooting began 7.52am on Tuesday morning shooting people at random before stealing a truck and performing drive-bys on homes,  pedestrians and other drivers.

Neal tried gaining entry into the elementary school to maim and kill more children but failed and fled and was shot dead by the police near the property.

A parent, Stephanie Turner,  who was dropping off her children,  aged 6 and 7, told Sacramento Bee that she thought there was a car accident.

‘I pulled into the school and heard gunshots. I told my kids to get down onto the floor. Then I saw a guy in the back of the school with a rifle. As soon as he saw us, he started shooting at us. I just took off.’

On his ways,  Neal opened fire on a woman and her daughter who were in a Ford truck on the main road leading into town.

Local hospital officials said three people were transported by ground ambulances and one person,  a six year old boy, airlifted in a helicopter.

The six-year-old has been identified as Alejandro Hernandez, 6; he was hit in the chest and foot, according to a cousin who started a GoFundMe page for him.

District attorney,  Gregg Cohen,  said that while the school incident was shocking,  it came at the close of Neal’s 45 minute rampage during which four other victims were killed.

‘Obviously,  the school gets all the attention but there were many other people who were killed by his hands’, he said.
