California man says gunman was neighbor who acted ‘crazy’

A northern California man told local reporters that his roommate is among the victims after several people were shot and killed and that his neighbor was the gunman.

Brian Flint told the Record Searchlight newspaper in Redding on Tuesday that his neighbor, whom he knows only as Kevin, also stole his truck.

Flint said he and his roommate told authorities that their neighbor was acting ‘‘crazy’’ and was threatening them.


Flint said he had been shooting ‘‘hundreds of rounds’’ from large magazines.
