Authorities said five people have been killed, including the gunman, and multiple others injured after a shooting rampage that started at a home and ended at an elementary school in rural Northern California.

Investigators have recovered a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns. "I don't know any information at this time about any of the victims at the school".

"Tello said that, as he left, he saw a woman lying dead in the street with her husband next to her, apparently wounded".

"I know that we have (airlifted) a number of students", Johnston told reporters. Johnston said that about 100 law enforcement personnel were spread out at "multiple scenes" in and around the school, and described local police as "spread thin". "We have at least 5 scenes right now", the deputy said.

The school is now clear, and all other students have been brought to a safe location.

Sheriff Johnston declined to release the name of the shooter but said the gunfire began with a domestic violence incident that neighbours reported.

Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said that around one hundred law enforcement personnel were investigating five separate scenes relating to the incident.

Brian Flint told local media his neighbor was the shooter and had stolen his truck. "This guy has been insane, and he's been threatening us and everything". When asked how he was feeling, he replied: "I just feel like maybe there should've been more effort put into potentially stopping things like this".

California Governor Jerry Brown said in a statement he and his wife were "saddened to hear about today's violence in Tehama County, which shockingly involved schoolchildren".
