"The mother of the gunman who killed four people during a shooting rampage in Northern California said he called her a day earlier and told her 'it's all over now.'
"Kevin Neal's mother told The Associated Press in a phone interview Tuesday from her home in Raleigh, North Carolina, that her son was frustrated by constant feuding with his neighbors and told her 'I'm on a cliff and there's nowhere to go.'
