(SOUND BITE) TEHAMA COUNTY ASSISTANT SHERIFF PHIL JOHNSTON, SAYING: "This incident could have been so much worse if it wan't for the quick thinking of staff at our elementary school.// It appears that because he couldn't make access to any of the rooms, that they were locked, that...he gave it up and re-entered the vehicle and then went on his killing spreeand took it to the streets of Rancho Tehama."
