LOS ANGELES (AFP) - 

At least three people were killed and two children were wounded Tuesday in a shooting at a school in rural Northern California, authorities said.

The shooting broke out at a home in Tehama County and continued at the Rancho Tehama Elementary School, local authorities were quoted as saying.

"I know that we have medevacked (airlifted) a number of students, I know that the school has been cleared, I know that we have the children that were attending school in a safe location at this time," he said.

He added that some 100 law enforcement officers had responded to the shooting.
