LOS ANGELES, Nov.15,2017 --  At least three were killed, including the suspect, in a shooting occurred near a elementary school Tuesday morning in a rural and small community of California, about 190 kilometers north of the state capital of Sacramento.
Tehama County assistant sheriff Phil Johnston said that police received call at about 8:00 a.m., saying "multiple shots were fired in Rancho Tehama, that evolved to multiple victims and multiple shots at the school."
"I am told the suspected shooter is deceased by law enforcement bullets," said the deputy.
He confirmed that at least three were killed, but could not verify if there were any students among the victims.
Johnson said that the school was cleared, and the children who were attending school were moved to a safe location.
"We have about 100 law enforcement personnel in Rancho Tehama, working at least five scenes," he said.
Some local media reported that five people including the gunman were killed and seven others injured in the shooting.
There are 1,485 residents living in the community.
