    At least four killed in school shooting in northern California




    California shooting: at least three dead as children wounded at school – police

    A California shooting left several people dead and multiple children injured at an elementary school on Tuesday, police said.

    Authorities said a shooter fired shots in multiple locations in a rural area in northern California, including at Tehama elementary school, before law enforcement officers killed the suspect. School officials said students were shot and wounded.

    Police have said at least three people died, but it is unclear if that number includes the suspect.

    Officials said there were calls of “multiple shots fired” around 8am local time in Rancho Tehama, an area three hours north of San Francisco.

    “That evolved to multiple victims and multiple shots at the elementary school,” Phil Johnston, an assistant sheriff, told reporters. “I don’t know how many victims. I know of at least three deaths.”

    Johnston said police were investigating at least five crime scenes, adding: “The school has been cleared. We have the children that were attending school in a safe location.

    “We are spread thin,” the assistant sheriff said.

    Three people were being treated at a hospital in Redding, which is 50 miles north of the shootings, a spokesperson for Mercy medical center told the Associated Press.

    The shooting happened the same day that family members of the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting victims were in court in a case challenging gun companies for marketing and selling an AR-15-style rifle. That weapon was used to kill 20 children and six adults in December 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut, in one of the worst mass shootings in America.

    The families face an uphill battle due to a 2005 law that protects gun manufacturers from liability when their weapons are misused by criminals.

    The northern California shooting happened less than two weeks after a gunman used an AR-15-style rifle to kill 25 people, including many children, at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. In Las Vegas weeks earlier, 58 people were killed and hundreds more injured in the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

    It's already begun... usual arguments against gun control go along the lines of "criminals don't obey laws".

    Guns + loonies + criminals = Massacre.

    Wonder when Gun supporters realize this. Nobody should possess a weapon unless it is law enforcement.

    Guns dont belong in a civilian population. Only the police should weild guns and deal with any criminals who possess guns.

    The issue in USA is that they dont trust their police and they have a strong leaning towards defending themselves on their own and not wait for help. Probably hollywood effect. Unfortunately the lunatics take advantage of easy access to guns and start shooting people when the teacher gives extra homework.
