Now, This Is Actually Happening presents: Point Blank, a five-part series shedding a light on the forgotten spree killings of Rancho Tehama. In November of 2017, a lone gunman devastated a small town in northern California, attacking 8 different locations in the span of only 25 minutes. Overshadowed by the Las Vegas shooting that dominated the headlines just weeks earlier, this small community quickly faded from view, and was left alone to pick up the pieces.The series follows five stories of people connected to the incident, from a father that drew the gunman away from the local school, to the sister of the shooter. These are riveting stories that will stick with you long after you listen, exploring the question, what happens when everything changes?Listen to Point Blank by following This Is Actually Happening wherever you get your podcasts: Wondery.fm/Adulting_TIAHHey Prime Members, you can listen to This Is Actually Happening ad-free on Amazon Music.
