Authorities say shootings in rural Northern California leave 5 dead, including shooter; 2 children wounded.

RED BLUFF, Calif. (AP/CBS San Francisco) – Authorities say several people have been killed in shootings at multiple locations in rural Northern California, and the shooter has been killed by law enforcement.

According to the CBS affiliate KHSL-TV, the shootings took place shortly after 8 a.m. in Rancho Tehama, a town about 15 miles southwest of Red Bluff and 130 miles north of Sacramento.

Students also were shot and wounded at an elementary school.

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.

Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston tells a TV station in the city of Chico that officers are investigating at least five crime scenes in and around the school in Rancho Tehama Reserve, about 130 miles north of Sacramento.

“It was right about 8 a.m. we had multiple shots fired in Rancho Tehama,” Johnston said. “That evolved to multiple victims and multiple shots at the school, at the elementary school. I am told at this point the suspected shooter is deceased by law enforcement bullets, that’s what I’m told.”
