4 killed, children wounded, suspect dead in Tehama County

A shooter in a rural northern California town began randomly opening fire at people Tuesday, killing at least four before he was shot dead by police, said a sheriff office spokesman.

An administrative assistant at the Corning Union Elementary School District said that no one was killed at the school but a "number" of students were shot and wounded.

Johnston said he was told the suspected shooter was killed by law enforcement gunfire. There are at least seven crime scenes related to the incident. Investigators recovered a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns, according to Johnston.

Tehama County Undersheriff Phil Johnston said the victim toll may rise.

"We made it aware that this guy is insane and he's been threatening us", he said.

"I know that we have medevacked (airlifted) a number of students, I know that the school has been cleared, I know that we have the children that were attending school in a safe location at this time", Johnston said.

In 2010, a vehicle carrying former McLaren driver Jenson Button was approached by three gunmen near Interlagos circuit. A Mercedes spokesman said: "We can confirm that a team minibus was robbed at gunpoint last night leaving the circuit".

According to FoxNews.com, the gunman responsible for the shooting fired shots at several locations north of Sacramento, including an elementary school.

"We are cooperating with local law enforcement - we don't have any confirmed information at this point", but a statement from the superintendent will be forthcoming when they know more, she said. Mercy Dignity Health confirmed that the hospital has received three patients.

Around 100 law enforcement personnel are now present at five crime scenes in the area.

Jose Garcia, who owns the La Fortuna Market, about a half-mile from the school, also said he heard "a lot of shooting" near the school shortly after 8 a.m.

Officers were sent to multiple scenes in the area.
