Three people were killed Tuesday morning in a shooting that started at a school and then continued in a rural northern California school.

Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said that around one hundred law enforcement personnel were investigating five separate scenes relating to the incident.

Jim Schultz, a court reporter with Redding.com, was live-tweeting an interview with the alleged shooter's neighbor, Brian Flint, who said the suspect harassed him.

Two hospitals said they were treating seven people, including at least three children.

The gunfire began at about 8am in the community of Rancho Tehama Reserve, about 130 miles north of Sacramento.

The remaining kids who were at the school have been moved to a safe location, Johnston said.

Jeanine Quist, an administrative assistant at Corning Union Elementary School District-one of the locations of the shooting-said that no one was killed at the school, but several people were injured. A second child and a female adult were shot in a truck, authorities said.

An officer told ABC News the shooter, who wielded two handguns and a semi-automatic rifle, appeared to randomly pick his targets.

"I know that we have airlifted a number of students", an official said, referring to "airlifting" a number of victims to the hospitals.

Police offered no immediate word on the assailant's motive, but a sheriff's official said the shooter's neighbors had reported a domestic violence incident.

"The insane thing is that the neighbour has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines", Mr Flint said.

California Governor Jerry Brown said in a statement he and his wife were "saddened to hear about today's violence in Tehama County, which shockingly involved schoolchildren".
