The alleged gunman was also shot dead by authorities, the sheriff’s department said.

There are also reports and eyewitness accounts of several people injured, with some airlifted from the school.

The sheriff’s department in Tehama County said officers had recovered a semiautomatic rifle and two handguns believed to have been used by the shooter.

Police in Tehama County, California, said the shooting began at a home in the local area and moved to Rancho Tehama elementary school.

Several shots were fired at the school, sometime before 9am.

There are currently 100 law enforcement personnel on the scene, while residents have been encouraged to remain in their homes as police investigate.

Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said: “I know that we have airlifted a number of students.

“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.”

Eyewitness Coy Ferreira told local media KRCR he was dropping his daughter off a kindergarten around 8am local time when the shooting began.

He said he heard what sounded like a firecracker before a school secretary ran out and told everyone to go into classrooms due to a shooter at the school.

Mr Ferreira told reporters he ran into a classroom with 14 students.

He said bullets flew through the classroom windows, hitting one student who was shot in the foot and chest.

He said a child in an adjacent classroom was shot under the arm. Both children were conscious and talking after they were shot.

    It is time to save your children. Save their life. Pull them out of the public school system and home school your children. Together we can have a union free school system all virtual where your child can have personal attention and an education on the internet. Learn It Online. This will drastically reduce and most likely eliminate corrupt teachers unions. In turn you can live your life without paying bloated school taxes. The law should be changed to: If you don’t have a child you do not have to pay school taxes. Besides the fact their life is being threatened by government sponsored terrorism. No school buses. No snow days needed.
