5 dead, students wounded in shooting near California elementary school

TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. (KRON) — Five people have been killed in shootings that started at a home in Tehama County and moved to an elementary school Tuesday morning.

Deputies received a report of shots fired at around 8 a.m. at Rancho Tehama Elementary school, said a Tehama County Sheriff’s Official.

A Sheriff’s official said that there were multiple wounded at the elementary school, according to KRON4’s CNN affiliate KHSL.

The suspected shooter was shot and killed by law enforcement, officials confirmed.

Sheriff’s officials say the students are now at a safe location.

The shooting began at a home near the elementary school.

There are about 100 law enforcement officials at least seven different locations spread across Rancho Tehama where the shooter opened fire.

Jeanine Quist, an administrative assistant with the Corning Union Elementary School District, says no one was killed at the school but a “number” of students were shot and wounded.

Brian Flint spoke with KHSL and said the alleged gunman shot and killed his roommate.

“The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines,” Flint told KHSL. “And we’ve made it aware that this guy has been crazy, and he’s been threatening us and everything like that.”
