Authorities described a chaotic scene in which a gunman in a stolen car appeared to pick targets at random in the rural Northern California county. They said the shootings appear to have begun as a “domestic violence incident” but did not provide details. The gunman was fatally shot by sheriff’s deputies. His name has not been released. The Tehama County Sheriff’s Office said that it was dealing with seven crime scenes and that 10 victims were being treated for injuries. Officials don’t have a motive for the attack but said the gunman seemed to fire at random and might have been in some type of dispute with neighbors. The gunfire began around 8 a.m. in Rancho Tehama, near Red Bluff, about 120 miles northwest of Sacramento. “It was all over in about 45 minutes,” Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said. A semi-automatic rifle and two handguns were recovered after deputies shot and killed the gunman. “I have to tell you I am personally grateful to the men who engaged this suspect,” Johnston said. “It’s a tragic event, but I am personally grateful for engaging such a terrible, a mass murderer really.
