Three people were killed in a shooting Tuesday morning that started at a home and moved to an elementary school in Tehama County, and the shooter was also killed by law enforcement, the sheriff's department said.

Multiple shots were fired about 8 a.m. at Rancho Tehama School on the outskirts of Corning, northwest of Chico, Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said.

"I know that we have (airlifted) a number of students," 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."

Officers are investigating at least five scenes in and around the school.

An employee with the Corning Unified School District said there were reports of an active shooter at the school, and there were confirmed injuries.

Brian Flint spoke with KCRA's affiliate Action News Now and said that his truck was stolen and his roommate was shot and killed by the gunman.

"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 roommates lived near the gunman, and Flint said that their neighbor had been shooting a lot of rounds recently.

"The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines," Flint said. "We made it aware that this guy has been crazy, and he's been threatening us and everything. I just feel like there maybe should have been more effort put into stopping things like this."

No additional details have been released.

KCRA has a crew on the way to the scene.
