We will have to wait for more detailed reports.
It has now been learned that a shooter randomly picking targets killed four people and injured many more on Tuesday morning in rural Northern California, Tehama County sheriff’s officials said.
The alleged gunman was shot dead by law enforcement officials, the sheriff’s department said. He marks the fifth fatality, but officials said the death count could fluctuate as the day progresses.
“We are aware that there was a domestic violence incident as reported by neighbors involving the suspected shooter,” Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said. “I know that we have (airlifted) a number of students,” Johnston told reporters. “I know that the schools’s been cleared. I know that we have children that were attending school in a safe location at this time.”
He said that two officers shot at the suspect upon encountering him, and have since been removed from the scene. Johnston said officers have recovered a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns, which he believes were used by the shooter.
The shooter’s name was not released at this time.
