California shooting: Five dead, three children injured in elementary school shooting

A series of shootings Tuesday that ended at a Northern California elementary school left at least five people dead and 10 others injured, including two children, sheriff's officials said.

Authorities said the shooting in Tehama County, between Chico and Redding, began as a "domestic violence incident" around 8 a.m. and spanned multiple locations, including Rancho Tehama School at 17357 Stagecoach Road, Corning, where several shots were fired. The gunman was shot and killed by police, according to reporters on the scene.

Enloe Medical Centre spokeswoman Nicole Johansson said the hospital was treating four people this morning, including three minors.

The school is in the Rancho Tehama Reserve, about 130 miles north of Sacramento.

Tiffany's husband, Brian Rodgers, said another witness reported seeing a white pickup drive through the school gate and start shooting.

At least one student was shot at the elementary school, and another child was shot in a truck along with an adult female, Johnston said.

Facebook asks users to send nude pictures
Once they have sent the image, Facebook's technology would "hash" or create a digital fingerprint of it. Facebook says it is not storing the photos, just the hashes of the photos.

Johnston said he was told the suspected shooter was killed by law enforcement gunfire.

Some students at the school were medically evacuated; it's not clear yet how many people were injured in the shooting.

The subject appeared to be "randomly picking targets", Johnston said. Police recovered a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns from the scene.

A 30-year-old man was also being taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the right thigh, according to emergency dispatch reports. "We made it aware that this guy is insane and he's been threatening us".

California Governor Jerry Brown said in a statement he and his wife were "saddened to hear about today's violence in Tehama County, which shockingly involved schoolchildren".
