The shooting took place around 8 AM and the school was cleared by 10 AM, according to Sheriff Johnson.

About 100 law enforcement officers are on the scene investigating at least seven different crime scenes in the area relating to the shooter, Sheriff Johnson revealed.

The shooter was killed by police, reports stated.

"It's a really sad day for us in Tehama County, really," Johnston said.

A motive for the shooting had not yet been determined.
