The suspect reportedly started opening fire at a home, then moved to Rancho Tehama School on the Rancho Tehama Reserve, authorities say.

A semi-automatic rifle and two handguns believed to be used by the gunman, who engaged police in a shootout, have been recovered, according to Johnston.

The shootings happened at multiple locations in rural Northern California and it wasn't yet clear if the shooter was among the number of dead, the AP story said.

A helicopter medical crew reported they were transporting a 6-year-old victim to Mercy Medical Center in Redding. Johnston said that about 100 law enforcement personnel were spread out at "multiple scenes" in and around the school, and described local police as "spread thin".

Wounded students were medevaced to nearby hospitals.

Assistant Sheriff for Tehama County Phil Johnston told KCRA shots were fired around 8 a.m.

Students at Rancho Tehama Elementary are being evacuated to the Rancho Tehama Recreation Hall. He said the shooter also stole his truck. Flint said the neighbor had been shooting "hundreds of rounds" from large magazines. "We made it aware that this guy is insane and he's been threatening us".

Flint learned of the shooting via a phone call early Tuesday. "I just feel like there maybe should have been more effort put into stopping things like this".

A person with the username Javier Figueroa tweeted that the shooting had taken place at his brother's school.

Initial reports said somebody was barricaded in a structure and there were multiple victims, including one who was dead. "They went around the community shooting at the schools!"

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".
