UPDATE: Gunman shooting from vehicle — 5 DEAD in shooting at California elementary school…

This is terrible:

KRCRTV – Witnesses tell a chilling account of two gunmen who opened fire at Rancho Tehama Elementary School near Corning Tuesday morning.

According to the AP, three people have been killed in multiple locations. Students were shot in the school, but it is not believed that any children are among the dead.

Coy Ferreira, whose daughter is a kindergarten student, was dropping his daughter off for class just before 8 a.m. when he heard what sounded like a firecracker. A school secretary ran out and yelled for the kids to get in the classrooms because someone was shooting at the school.

Ferreira said he ran into a classroom with 14 students. He said the series of shots came through the classroom windows, hitting one student. Ferreria said a young boy was shot in the foot and the chest. When he spoke to us, he said the child was alert and talking. He said another student in an adjacent classroom was shot under the arm. That child was also conscious.

Ferreira said there were two gunmen. He saw one of them, a man in his 30’s-40’s dressed in green camo running away from the school after the shooting.

A witness named Tiffany, who operates Coffee Addiction Coffee Shop near the school, told KRCR News Channel 7 she heard 90-100 shots fired.

She reported seeing a Honda drive by with the windows shot out. She also saw at least five ambulances responding to the area.

Tiffany’s husband, Brian Rodgers, said another witness reported seeing a white pickup drive through the school gate and start shooting.

Authorities have not confirmed the number of victims.

Here’s the report from the AP:

A series of shootings at multiple locations in rural Northern California left three people dead and several others wounded Tuesday, including students at an elementary school, authorities said.

Law enforcement officers killed the shooter, but it was not clear if authorities counted it among the three deaths.

Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston tells a TV station in the city of Chico that officers are investigating at least five crime scenes in and around the school in Rancho Tehama Reserve, about 130 miles north of Sacramento.

“It was right about 8 a.m. we had multiple shots fired in Rancho Tehama,” Johnston said. “That evolved to multiple victims and multiple shots at the school, at the elementary school. I am told at this point the suspected shooter is deceased by law enforcement bullets, that’s what I’m told.”

Jeanine Quist, an administrative assistant with the Corning Union Elementary School District, said no one was killed at the school with kindergarten through fifth grades but that a “number” of students were shot and wounded.

Johnston said the school had been cleared by 10 a.m. but he did not have any information about the victims there.

Three people were being treated at a hospital in Redding, about 50 miles north of the shootings, Mercy Medical Center spokeswoman Marcy Miracle said. She declined to provide other details about the victims or their injuries.
