At least three people were killed in a shooting at a rural Northern California school Tuesday morning.
Tehama County officials are responding to a reported shooting near a school in Rancho Tehama, near Corning. The gunman had a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns.
The Associated Press says the shooter has been killed by law enforcement.
The school has been cleared and children were moved to a safe location. The cops were present at the spot and the emergency department have airlifted "multiple students" from the scene, with a 6-year-old reportedly among the injured.
The AP reported that the shooter was killed by law enforcement after wounding some students at the school. He said the shooter also stole his truck.
NPR's Nate Rott spoke to resident Tiffany Rodgers, who knows nearly every student at the elementary school and heard the shooting from a nearby cafe.
The nearby Rancho Tehama Airport is also on lockdown.
The violence started with an apparent domestic dispute, according to neighbors, and spread out with the suspect "randomly picking targets", Johnston said.
"The insane thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines", the unnamed witness told KCRA. "I just feel like there maybe should have been more effort put into stopping things like this".
Gov. Jerry brown issued a statement on the shooting, saying: "Anne and I are saddened to hear about today's violence in Tehama County, which shockingly involved schoolchildren".
A person with the username Javier Figueroa tweeted that the shooting had taken place at his brother's school.
