Calif. Elementary School Shooting Leaves Three Dead, Others Injured
The Sacramento Bee
Nov. 14—At least three people are dead in a school shooting in Rancho Tehama, a town of 1,500 west of Corning in Tehama County.
Multiple shots were fired in Rancho Tehama about 8 a.m., assistant sheriff Phil Johnston told Action News Now, which later led to multiple shots fired and multiple victims at Rancho Tehama Elementary School, which is in the Rancho Tehama Reserve.
Law enforcement officers shot and killed the suspected shooter, Johnston said, and "a number of students" were transported to area hospitals via medivac, Johnston said. Enloe Medical Center spokeswoman Nicole Johansson said the Chico hospital was treating three children and one adult injured in the shooting, but did not know their conditions or ages.
About 100 law enforcement personnel are examining at least five scenes of interest in Rancho Tehama, Johnston said. All remaining students have been relocated to a secure location, he said.
Corning resident Brian Flint told local media that his roommate had been shot and killed by a neighbor, whom he identified as "Kevin," early Tuesday. The man then reportedly stole Flint's truck. Flint said the neighbor frequently shot hundreds of rounds from high-capacity magazines and had threatened him and his roommate in the past.
