At least three people are dead after a shooting in rural Northern California Tuesday morning, CBS Sacramento reports.

Jeanine Quist, an administrative assistant with the Corning Union Elementary School District, says no one was killed at the school but a "number" of students were shot and wounded.

Roughly 100 students attend the school, according to a local ABC affiliate, and a "number" were reportedly shot and wounded at the scene in Red Bluff, California.

"It was very clear early on that we had a subject that was randomly picking targets", Johnston said.

Salvador Tello said the gunman fired at a truck in front of him as he was dropping off his three children. Officials said they are actively searching for the shooter.

More than 33,000 people die annually in the United States from gun-related deaths - two thirds of them suicides - according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Hasbro makes takeover offer for Mattel
Shares of Mattel soared in after-hours trading Friday after a report that rival Hasbro made a takeover offer for Mattel. For much of this year, there has been talk across the toy industry about a possible tie-up between the two companies.

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

"We made it aware that this guy is insane and he's been threatening us", he said. After hearing gunfire and screams, she called 911.

The shooter's identity is now unclear, and as one man indicated, two gunmen might have carried out the attack.

"We offer our condolences to the families who lost loved ones and unite with all Californians in grief", Brown said. The kids who were at the school are in a safe location, Johnston said. He said another student in an adjacent classroom was shot under the arm.

The AP reported that the shooter was killed by law enforcement after wounding some students at the school.
