5 Dead, 2 Children Wounded in Northern California Shooting

November 14, 2017  | 

Five people have been killed, including the shooter, in the small community of Rancho Tehama in Northern California, about 120 miles northwest of Sacramento, reports the Redding Record Searchlight.

Undersheriff Phil Johnston with the Tehama County (CA) Sheriff's Office said there were seven shooting scenes and there may be more victims.

Two children were also shot and wounded, he confirmed.

The shooting started shortly after 8 a.m., according to a Tehama County sheriff's deputy, who confirmed two children have been hospitalized with gunshot wounds.

"It's a very sad day for us in Tehama County," said the unnamed deputy, who was visibly shaken by events.

There were at least 100 law enforcement officers at the scene, the deputy said.

"Multiple shots were fired in Rancho Tehama. That evolved into multiple victims and multiple shots at the school," said the deputy. "I am told the suspected shooter is deceased from law enforcement bullets."

Brian Flint said he got a call in the morning that his roommate was injured and that his truck had been stolen. It turned out his neighbor was the gunman, Flint said.
