At least five people were killed in a shooting at a California elementary school.

At least two students were wounded when a gunman opened fire at the Rancho Tehama School near the town of Corning in northern California Tuesday morning, KCRA 3 news reported. At least ten people were wounded in total.

The shooting reportedly started in a nearby home before moving to the school.

"I know that we have [airlifted] a number of students," Assistant Sheriff Phil 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."

Johnson said that the gunman was "randomly picking targets" and that there were seven different shooting locations.

Police found a semiautomatic rifle and two handguns which were used by the shooter.

Brian Flint, a neighbor of the gunman, told Action News Now that the shooter stole his truck and killed his roommate.

"He's dead. He didn't make it," Flint said. "For his family and everything, I feel bad, and we'll be there for them."

The shooter has reportedly been killed.
