At least four people have been killed and 10 wounded following a shooting rampage at several locations, including an elementary school, in Northern California on Tuesday morning, according to media reports.
The shooting occurred around 8 a.m. in Rancho Tehama, about 200 kilometers northwest of Sacramento, the state capitol. The gunman was killed by police, authorities were quoted as saying.
The 10 wounded -- including two children -- are being treated at a hospital.
The gunman randomly targeted people and property in seven locations, USA Today reported, citing an undersheriff of the local sheriff's office. The shooter was armed with a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns.
Police did not give immediate word on the assailant's motive for the shooting but a sheriff's official said the gunman's neighbors had reported a domestic violence incident, according to the Associated Press.
