California Gov. Jerry Brown has also released a statement on the shooting, saying that he and his wife are "saddened to hear about today's violence in Tehama County, which shockingly involved schoolchildren". The cops were present at the spot and the emergency department have airlifted "multiple students" from the scene, with a 6-year-old reportedly among the injured.

"I don't know how many victims; I know of at least three deaths", Johnston said.

Two children were among the wounded, it was confirmed.

Around 100 law enforcement personnel are now present at five crime scenes in the area. Johnston said the school had been cleared by 10 a.m. but he did not have any information about the victims there.

Police offered no immediate word on the assailant's motive, but a sheriff's official said the shooter's neighbors had reported a domestic violence incident.

According to FoxNews.com, the gunman responsible for the shooting fired shots at several locations north of Sacramento, including an elementary school.

There were a total of 10 people injured, and Tehama County Superintendent of Schools Rich DuVarney said no students or staff at the school were among the fatalities.

Witnesses reported hearing gunshots and children screaming at an elementary school about five miles down a road from where the shooting is believed to have started. The school remains on lockdown. Rancho Tehama is southwest of Red Bluff.

Students at Rancho Tehama Elementary are being evacuated to the Rancho Tehama Recreation Hall.

"It's a really sad day for us in Tehama County, really", the official said t reporters.

"Our doors are locked", she said. Says his neighbor was the gunman.
