Police say at least three people have died after a suspect opened fire near an elementary school in rural northern California.
Multiple students have been airlifted from the scene of the crime, and a 6-year-old was reportedly one of the victims.
According to authorities, the shooter was shot and killed by police.
Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said that multiple shots were fired before 8 am local time at Rancho Tehama School on the outskirts of Corning, California. “We have airlifted a number of students,” Johnston said. I know that the school’s been cleared.” He continued:
I don’t have a list of victims…I do not know how many victims. I know of at least three deaths. I don’t know any information at this time about any of the victims at the school. I know that we have medevaced 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…we have about 100 law enforcement personnel in Rancho Tehama right now with multiple, multiple scenes. I can think of at least five scenes that I’ve been told about. We are spread thin but we have a lot of resources right now and you can see that we’re still requesting ambulances and we’re still doing our work.Download Video Links
