Four people have been killed and there are reports of multiple injuries in a shooting at a Rancho Tehama elementary school in northern California. The attacker is also dead, reportedly killed by police.

Five people have been killed, including the shooter, KNVN-TV reported. Two children are among the injured.

The shooting began "right about 8 am," local time (1600 GMT), according to Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnson. The attack reportedly started at a nearby home before moving to the school.

"I know of at least three deaths," Johnson told KNVN-TV. "I am told at this point the suspected shooter is deceased by law enforcement bullets."

Over 100 law enforcement officers have responded to the scene, the sheriff said. The Enloe Medical Center confirmed to KNVN that three children and one adult were evacuated from the scene. One of them required a medical helicopter.

"I know that we have medevaced 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."

Rancho Tehama is a town of 1,500 residents in Tehama County, north of Sacramento.
