3 dead, shooter killed in California school shooting

Three people have died and schoolchildren have been injured in a shooting in northern California, US authorities have said.

Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston stated that the shooter was "randomly picking targets". He says there were seven shooting scenes and that there may be more victims.

Officials said they recovered a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns from the shooter.

Sheriff Johnston said that a number of students have been airlifted out and that the uninjured students are now safe. "This guy has been insane, and he's been threatening us and everything".

St. Elizabeth Community Hospital in the community of Red Bluff received two patients, including one who was stabilized and transferred to another facility, Amanda Harter, a spokeswoman for the facility, said in an email.

Separately, three people were being treated at a hospital in Redding, about 80km north of the shootings.
