Multiple shooting fatalities and injuries at multiple locations in northern California


Per Fox affiliate KTVU-TV and the AP, a “shooting rampage” left five people dead, including the shooter, and 10 wounded in rural Northern California, in an unusual spree in this small, rural part of the state, according to the Tehama County Undersheriff. Two of the wounded are young boys.

At a news conference, Undersheriff Phil Johnston said that despite a domestic dispute reported on Monday between the shooter and a neighbor in the small city 100 miles north of Sacramento, he was not sure of the motive that prompted the Tuesday morning “rampage.”

Brian Flint told Record Searchlight newspaper after the incident that his neighbor was the gunman in Tuesday’s deadly shooting. Flint said the neighbor was acting “crazy,” threatening him and his roommate before stealing his truck.

At least five people are dead from apparent random shootings today in rural Northern California. The shootings took place in seven locations, including an elementary school, police said. The dead included the shooter, who was killed by police.

One student was shot at the Rancho Tehama School, an elementary school in Corning, about 130 miles north of Sacramento, police said. The student was taken to a hospital. No deaths were reported at the school, according to Ann Bates, administrative assistant to the superintendent of the Corning Union Elementary School District.

Authorities said a child and an adult woman were shot in a truck. They were also transported to hospitals.

It was not immediately clear how many people were injured, authorities said.

Police said the shooter appeared to randomly pick his targets. The shooter had a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns, police said. Two officers engaged the shooter, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

    If we keep on heading the same direction, eventually we will get where we’re headed. And so we arriving there. Lawlessness.

    I couldn’t care less about the motive. The action is the issue.

    Just a bit south, drove there once a few years ago to look at a dog for my daughter. Kind of place you have to “want” to got to, off the beaten track and out a ways into the foothills.
    Place is in bad shape, my thoughts were of meth labs and pot farms as I drove in. Maybe some nice ranches and farms out and about, but not what stood out. There is another place not too far called Hayfork, was warned not to go there, shoot, even the law doesn’t. Kind of left to your own as Sharon points out above.
    Sad that children were involved, and the L.A. Times article states “tactical vest” and “semi-automatic rifle” were used, so this will get some play time. But the article also has a local saying, “’s not guns…It’s the person…”. And hoped the shooting wouldn’t be used for gun control purposes.

        Yes, started hitting the airwaves about noon, at least that’s the first I heard of it, but then again, don’t listen to radio much or watch tv.
        Not a place for any Isis types to be, so totally believable it’s a neighborhood feud that went postal.
        As the local said, ” Sometimes life just happens.”
        Again, sad he had to go after kids, that should never happen. Glad he got put down.

      ‘Tactical vest’ is like ‘assault weapon’. People have no idea, for the most part, what one is but if you say it in a ‘booga-booga’ voice you get an ignorant ominous picture in your mind. The ‘tactical vest’ could be anything from a full-on military plate-carrier with Level IV armor plates to an Abercrombie & Fitch Brit quail shooting vest…then again, what does it matter, it’s about emotion and not accuracy.
      At least they don’t use ‘assault rifle’, looks like they’ve gone to ‘semi automatic’ as the new term of the day. And why not, after all like with ‘vest’ ‘semi automatic’ id a fungible term. Hey, a bolt action rifle is semi-auto, it’s not full auto and you have to manipulate the bolt to get iot to shoot – there’s the ‘semi’ part.
      OK, let’s wait for Old Joe to start putting his fractured two cents in.

  4. Next up: they’ll vote to demolish the school, and rebuild it, because guns were used near it.

    And because lots of cash money will flow.
