5 Dead, 4 Injured in Shooting Spree at Northern California School
At least five people were killed in a shooting Tuesday morning that started at a home and moved to an elementary school in Tehama County, and the shooter was also killed by law enforcement, the sheriff’s department said.
Multiple shots were fired about 8 a.m. at Rancho Tehama School on the outskirts of Corning, northwest of Chico, Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said.
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.
“I know that we have (airlifted) a number of students,” Johnston said. “I know that the school’s been cleared. I know that we have children that were attending school in a safe location at this time.”
More than 100 law enforcement officers are investigating at least five scenes in and around the school, Johnston said.
Brian Flint spoke with Action News Now and said that his truck was stolen and his roommate was shot and killed by the gunman.
“He’s dead. He didn’t make it,” Flint said. “For his family and everything, I feel bad, and we’ll be there for them.”
The roommates lived near the gunman, and Flint said that their neighbor had been shooting a lot of rounds recently.
