    Five*people have been killed — including the shooter*—*in a mass shooting*at and around a school some 15 miles southwest of Red Bluff that also hospitalized at least 10 people, including children.*
    Tehama County Undersheriff Phil Johnston*said the victim toll may rise. He confirmed two children were also shot and wounded, and officials were processing*seven or more crime scenes

    It's a very sad day for us in Tehama County," said a deputy, who was visibly shaken.
    Ten shooting victims were taken to various hospitals around the North State: Three*to Mercy Medical Center in Redding, two*to St. Elizabeth Community Hospital in Red Bluff and five*to Enloe Medical Center in Chico, employees at those*hospitals said.
    It was not immediately clear whether*more victims had been hospitalized.*
    Three of the victims were treated and released from Enloe, spokeswoman Jolene Francis said.
    It all started shortly after 8 a.m. when a lone shooter opened fire at several locations with a rifle and two handguns, a deputy at the scene said.
    There were at least 100 law enforcement officers on site,*he said. The FBI also "is sending some teams up to assist at the request of Tehama County authorities," said Jason Wandel, chief division counsel*at the FBI's Sacramento field office

    Shooting near California elementary school leaves several dead, children wounded

    Four people were shot and killed Tuesday morning when a gunman opened fire at multiple "random" locations in Northern California*— including near an elementary school, authorities said.
    Four people*— including two children — were also wounded in the incident. The shooter was killed by police officers. Mercy Medical Center spokeswoman Marcy Miracle said three patients were being treated at the hospital

    The shootings were reported in and around the elementary scchool, about 130 miles north of Sacramento, occurring at the time some parents were dropping off their children.
    More than 100 police officers are investigating seven different shooting scenes in the area. It was unclear if any of the shooting scenes happened on school ground.
    Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said the shooter was "randomly picking targets," and that there may be more victims.
    Brian Flint told Record Searchlight newspaper after the incident that his neighbor was the gunman in Tuesday’s deadly shooting. Flint said the neighbor was acting “crazy,” threatening him and his roommate before stealing his truck.
    Flint said his neighbor had been shooting "hundreds of rounds" from large magazines. Investigators have recovered a semi-automatic rifle, in addition to two handguns


    Witnesses at the school described multiple rounds being fired. Coy Ferreira told*KRCR*he was dropping off his daughter at the school just before 8 a.m. when he heard a firecracker-like sound. The school’s secretary then ran out and told children to go inside because there was an active shooter. Ferreira said he ended up in a classroom with 14 students and witnessed a boy being struck by bullets.
    Jeanine Quist, an administrative assistant with the Corning Union Elementary School District, said no one was killed at the school but a "number" of students were shot and wounded.
    The Tehama County Sheriff's Office has asked the Department of Justice to investigate the shooting, Johnston told KRCR. He added the FBI volunteered to investigate, as well.
    Gov. Jerry Brown said in a statement that he and his wife are "saddened to hear about today's violence in Tehama County, which shockingly involved schoolchildren. We offer our condolences to the families who lost loved ones and unite with all Californians in grief."
