There was a series of shootings in Northern California on Tuesday at seven different scenes, and authorities say at least five people are dead – including the shooter – and several others injured, including elementary school students, according to various reports.
The shootings took place in rural Tehama County, Northern California, near the Rancho Tehama School.
A local report from KCRA stated:
Three people were taken by ambulance and a fourth was airlifted to Enloe Medical Center in Chico, hospital officials said. Three of them were children and one was an adult, KCRA’s affiliate Action News Now reported.
The conditions of the victims have not been released.
Another report also claimed there were five people dead.
The Associated Press reported that law enforcement officers killed the shooter, “but it was not clear if authorities counted it among the three deaths.”
The AP also reported:
Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston tells a TV station in the city of Chico that officers are investigating at least five crime scenes in and around the school in Rancho Tehama Reserve, about 130 miles north of Sacramento.
“It was right about 8 a.m. we had multiple shots fired in Rancho Tehama,” Johnston said. “That evolved to multiple victims and multiple shots at the school, at the elementary school. I am told at this point the suspected shooter is deceased by law enforcement bullets, that’s what I’m told.”
