Several shots were fired at 8 a.m. local time at the Rancho Tehama School in Corning, located in rural Tehama County, Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston told the San Francisco Chronicle.

“I know that we have (airlifted) a number of students,” Johnston said. “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.”

A 6-year-old child is one of the multiple people injured, according to reports.

A witness told KCRA-TV that his truck was stolen and his roommate was shot and killed by the suspect.

“He’s dead. He didn’t make it,” the witness said. “For his family and everything, I feel bad, and we’ll be there for them.”

The roommates lived close to the gunman, and he said that the gunman was firing off rounds.

“The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines,” the unnamed witness told KCRA. “This guy has been crazy, and he’s been threatening us and everything. I just feel like there maybe should have been more effort put into stopping things like this.”
