Scott H. Thorpe, the "disturbed" gunman accused of casually killing two mental health workers and a restaurant employee, emerged Thursday as a recluse who preferred the company of his geese and chickens to people. The one neighbor who knew Thorpe best in this Sierra foothill hamlet described the suspect as a peaceful man who sought help from mental health professionals for his overwhelming fear of crowds. "It's just so out of character," said Gary Dalbey, 61, Thorpe's neighbor across the street.

The man suspected of killing two people at a Nevada City mental health office and a third person at a nearby restaurant last week had an arsenal of weapons at his home and was obsessed with a woman who worked at the clinic, investigators said Thursday. Authorities say Scott H. Thorpe, 40, shot five people Jan. 10, three at the Nevada County mental health office and two others at a Lyon's restaurant. Two victims survived; both are being treated at local hospitals.

A former Marine, who prosecutors said was living out his fantasy when he gunned down four supermarket employees, should be sentenced to death, a jury recommended Friday. Zane Floyd bowed his head and listened quietly as the decision was read. Some members of the jury cried. The same panel that convicted Floyd of first-degree murder took less than two days of deliberation to decide his fate. Juror Tim LeMaster made a statement on behalf of the jury, saying their decision had not been easy.
