BREAKING: Three dead in shooting at school – students airlifted

Police in Tehama County, California, said multiple shots were fired at Rancho Tehama School.

The shooting reportedly started at a home in the local area and moved to the elementary school in the Rancho Tehama community.

The shooter was killed by law enforcement, according to the sheriff’s department.

Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said: “I know that we have airlifted a number of students. 

“I know that the school’s been cleared. I know that we have children that were attending school in a safe location at this time.”

Eyewitness Coy Ferreira was dropping his daughter off at kindergarten at the time of the shooting.

It took place at around 8am local time.

He told local media KRCR he heard what sounded like a firecracker before a school secretary ran out and told everyone to go into classrooms due to a shooter at the school.

Mr Ferreira told reporters he ran into a classroom with 14 students.

He said bullets flew through the classroom windows, hitting one student who was shot in the foot and chest.

He said a child in an adjacent classroom was shot under the arm. Both children were conscious and talking after they were shot.

Ferreira said he saw a gunman, who looked to be in his 30’s or 40’s, and was dressed in green camouflage clothing as he ran from the school after the brutal attack.

Residents in the Rancho Tehama area have been asked to stay in their homes until the area is secured and shooters are captured.
