Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said Rancho Tehama School had seen a number of students airlifted to hospital, with seven people in total hospitalised. According to police, it appears that the shooter was randomly picking targets. Three other people were transported to a hospital in Redding, approximately 50 miles away.

The six-year-old child reportedly had two gunshot wounds and another child was reportedly shot in the leg.

The deputy said officers were called to at least five crime scenes.

Johnston also said "a number of students" were medically evacuated from the area, while the school was cleared. No information about their conditions was immediately available, according to a spokeswoman for the hospital, about 45 miles from the school.

The remaining kids who were at the school have been moved to a safe location, Johnston said. A man says his roommate is among the victims in Northern California and that his neighbor was the gunman.

Authorities have recovered a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns after the shootings in the rural subdivision described on its website as a "quiet private country community" where "the people are friendly and the pace is relaxed".

"The insane thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines", Flint said.
