This is a terribly sad story that we hate to report but it needs to be seen.

A 7-year-old boy named Gage is now an orphan after the shooting spree on Tuesday by a gunman in Northern California that left five people dead.

You see, Gage’s father and Grandmother were both murdered in the rampage.

When he was just 22-months-old, his mother Cher was killed in an accident. When Kevin Janson Neal, 44, began what authorities described as a “murderous rampage” in a neighborhood in Tehama County about 130 miles north of Sacramento, his father, his father’s girlfriend and her mother were among the victims., Fox News reported.

It’s wasn’t until many hours later that Gage learned his father and grandmother were among the victims killed — and that the shooter was their neighbor, KCRA reported.

His surviving grandmother, Sissy Feitelberg, has now started a GoFundMe fundraising account to raise money to raise her grandson, now an orphan.

“My husband and I live on Social Security, and a small retirement. I am going to have many, many expenses where Gage is concerned,” she wrote. “First off being the legal issue of getting custody of Gage, which should be no problem, I am hoping. But that is going to cost money.”

The 7-year-old now has to readjust his life and move to his grandmother’s home, and also need extensive counseling, according to Feitelberg.

“Gage is going to have to attend a new school, make new friends which he has already told me, he does not want to do,” she wrote.

The 7-year-old was at the Rancho Tehama Elementary School on Tuesday when the gunfire broke out and teachers told students to hide under their desks. Randy Morehouse, the district’s maintenance and operations head, said Neal “tried and tried and tried and tried to get into the kindergarten door,” where Gage was, but it was locked.

In an interview with KCRA-TV, the 7-year-old believes Neal targeted his school to try to find him. His grandmother said the gunman had an ongoing dispute with Gage’s family, but was unclear of the details.

Earlier this year, Neal was arrested and charged with stabbing Gage’s father’s girlfriend, Hailey Suzanne Poland, and attacking her mother during a Jan. 31 encounter in their rural neighborhood, according to court records.

Poland filed for a civil restraining order a week later protecting herself and her mother-and father-in-law, ages 68 and 74, as well as Gabe and his dad, Danny Elliott, 38, according to the records obtained the by the Los Angeles Times.

The gunman’s sister, Sheridan Orr, said her brother had struggled with mental illness throughout his life and at times had a violent temper, adding that he had “no business” owning firearms.

Several other neighbors had repeatedly reported that Neal was firing hundreds of rounds at his property every night.

Neighbor Jessie Sanders told FOX 40 he heard gunshots “every night.”

“The guy was a bad guy. I mean really. Just a bad person. Some people are just bad,” he said.

When asked by FOX 40 if the rampage was a shock, Sanders said he told them “this was coming.” When asked further what he meant, Sanders said Neal told them “we would all pay, that we would be the ones to pay in the end.”


God Bless.
