At least 3 dead in Calif. elementary school shooting

Shooting near elementary school kills at least three; children among injured

A gunman choosing targets at random opened fire in a rural California town, killing four people at several sites and wounding others at a primary school, before police shot him dead, authorities said.

Tehama County officials are responding to a reported shooting near a school in Rancho Tehama, near Corning. Officers recovered a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns, which they believe were used by the shooter. "I know that the school's been cleared".


"He's dead. He didn't make it", the witness said. "I know that we have children that were attending school in a safe location at this time". Fox 5 reports there are more than 100 law enforcement officers at the school and up to five crime scene. The shooter himself has been killed by police and several victims are now being treated at a local hospital. A woman and another child were shot in a truck that was driving near the school and taken to the hospital, he added. The gunman was shot by officials, according to the sheriff's department.

Several people were wounded at the school, said Jeanine Quist, an administrative assistant with the Corning Union Elementary School District.


Authorities in California say three people have been killed and multiple children have been injured in a number of shootings in California. Brian Flint tells the Record Searchlight newspaper in the city of Redding on Tuesday that his neighbor, whom he knows only as Kevin, also stole his truck. "We made it (known) that this guy is insane and he's been threatening us and everything like that".

Gov. Jerry Brown issued a statement offering condolences to families who lost loved ones in "today's violence in Tehama County, which shockingly involved schoolchildren".
