Authorities: 5 dead, 2 children wounded in CA shootings

RED BLUFF, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say 5 people are dead and 2 children have been wounded in shootings at multiple locations in rural Northern California.

The shooter, who was killed by law enforcement, is among those counted dead.

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.

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

A man said his roommate is among the victims and that his neighbor was the gunman.

Brian Flint told the Record Searchlight newspaper in the city of Redding on Tuesday that his neighbor, whom he knows only as Kevin, also stole his truck.

He said he and his roommate told authorities that their neighbor was acting “crazy” and threatening them.

Flint said he had been shooting “hundreds of rounds” from large magazines.

Enloe Medical Center spokeswoman Nicole Johansson said the hospital is treating four shooting victims, including three minors.

Separately, three people were being treated at a hospital in Redding, about 50 miles north of the shootings.
