    Four victims and a suspected gunman are dead following a shooting spree across multiple locations at the Rancho Tehama reserve in northern California, including at a local elementary school, authorities said Tuesday.

    Police said at least three children are among the wounded, including a six-year-old with two gunshot wounds who has been airlifted to a hospital. Another child was reportedly shot in the leg, the Redding Record Searchlight reported.

    Authorities and witnesses told media that the gunman appeared to pick targets randomly, driving around the community and shooting at people from his car. Police said the shooting appears to have begun as a “domestic violence incident,” though they did not go into detail.

    The suspected gunman was fatally shot by police, according to Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston, though he declined to release his name. Johnston added that a rifle and handguns were recovered from the scenes.
