He told Action News Now that there were at least seven crime scenes related to the incident.

A number of students were airlifted for medical care after gunfire at Rancho Tehama School, Johnston said.

"We made it aware that this guy is insane and he's been threatening us", he said. According to the Sacramento Bee a number of students were transported to area hospitals.

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

The Tehama County Sheriff's Department told the Los Angeles Times there were at least five separate crime scenes and the department was now trying to assess the number of casualties. About 100 students attend the school, which has kindergarten through fifth grades. The FBI confirmed to CBS News they are sending agents from Sacramento, Redding, and Chico to assist with the investigation.

Gov. Jerry Brown said in a statement on his website that he was "saddened to hear about today's violence in Tehama County, which shockingly involved schoolchildren".
