Three 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.
“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.”
Officers are investigating at least five scenes in and around the school.
An employee with the Corning Unified School District said there were reports of an active shooter at the school, and there were confirmed injuries.
Brian Flint spoke with KCRA’s affiliate Action News Now and said that his truck was stolen and his roommate was shot and killed by the gunman.
