  • Rancho Tehama school officials responded within '15 seconds' of shooting

"I know that we have airlifted a number of students", an official said, referring to "airlifting" a number of victims to the hospitals.

Among the dead are the gunman, who was killed by police, authorities said. "I know that the school's been cleared".

Officials said they recovered a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns from the shooter. He then stole a second vehicle and was shooting once again when two law enforcement officers killed him.

"That evolved to multiple victims and multiple shots at the school, the elementary school", he told Action News Now, a TV news channel in Northern California. At least ten people were hospitalized after the shooting spree. "They went around the community shooting at the schools!"

A school employee ran out and yelled for the children to get inside the classrooms because someone was shooting at the school, Ferreira said.

A reporter at Action News Now described anxious parents trying to get to their children at Rancho Tehama Elementary.

"Tello said that, as he left, he saw a woman lying dead in the street with her husband next to her, apparently wounded".

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. There are over 100 law enforcement officers at the school with up to five crime scenes.

Authorities said the shooting occurred around 8 a.m.in Rancho Tehama, near Red Bluff, Calif., about 120 miles northwest of Sacramento.

Gov. Jerry brown issued a statement on the shooting, saying: "Anne and I are saddened to hear about today's violence in Tehama County, which shockingly involved schoolchildren".
