CA Officials: Shooter Made His Own Guns


At least two of the guns used in the Tehama County, California mass shooting on Tuesday were homemade, while the other two were not registered to the shooter, officials said.

USA Today reports, there was also a restraining order issued in February that prohibited the shooter from owning guns.

Mercury News reports that he certified he surrendered his weapons to authorities in February as well. 

The two homemade rifles were made from parts the shooter, Kevin Janson Neal, purchased, said Phil Johnston, Tehama County’s assistant sheriff.

“These firearms were manufactured illegally, we believe, by him at his home,” Johnston said Wednesday. “So they were obtained in an illegal manner, not through a legal process. They are not registered.”
