WASHINGTON - 15 November 2017: At least five people are dead following shootings at multiple locations in Tehama County, including an elementary school where at least two children were wounded, Los Angeles Times reported on Tuesday.
Authorities described a chaotic scene in which a gunman appeared to pick targets at random in the rural Northern California county. They said the shootings appear to have begun as a “domestic violence incident” but did not provide details.
The gunman was fatally shot by sheriff’s deputies. His name has not been released. The Tehama County Sheriff’s Office said it was dealing with at least five crime scenes and was trying to assess the number of casualties.
Authorities said the gunfire began around 8 a.m. in Rancho Tehama, near Red Bluff, about 120 miles northwest of Sacramento.
