Five killed in US shoot­ings

The Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

A SE­RIES of shoot­ings in ru­ral north­ern Cal­i­for­nia have left five peo­ple dead – in­clud­ing the gun­man.

Two chil­dren were among the wounded.

Te­hama County As­sis­tant Sher­iff Phil Johnston said one child was shot at a school, and an­other was shot while rid­ing in a pick-up truck with a woman who was also wounded.

Mr Johnston says the gun­man was “ran­domly pick­ing tar­gets”.

He said there were seven shoot­ing scenes and that there may be more vic­tims.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors have re­cov­ered a semi-au­to­matic ri­fle and two hand­guns.

Cal­i­for­nia Gov­er­nor Jerry Brown later said he and his wife, Anne, were sad­dened by the shoot­ing.
