Rancho Tehama School Shooting Victims (2017)

Five people are dead following a shooting spree in Northern California on Tuesday morning, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Officials now confirm that the shooter's wife has been found dead in her home. 

In addition to the five known victims, the gunman was killed by police. 

“At this point, the suspected shooter is deceased by law enforcement bullets,” Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston told reporters. 

Authorities said the shootings occurred around 8 a.m. in Rancho Tehama near the Rancho Tehama Elementary School. The area is about 120 miles Northwest of Sacramento, California. 

Sheriff Johnston said that students had been airlifted from the scene with injuries. 

Authorities described a chaotic scene in which the gunman appeared to pick targets at random. They said the shootings appear to have begun as “domestic violence incident” but did not provide details.
