New reports have raised the death toll of a shooting in northern California.

CNN is reporting that five people died in the attacks in Rancho Tehama on Tuesday. One of the dead is the gunman, who was shot and killed by police after taking his shooting spree to an elementary school. 

Before that, the shooter opened fire in at least seven other locations, CNN says. Police told ABC News 10 people remain hospitalized, including at least two children.

According to the New York Times, the gunman was armed with a semiautomatic rifle and two handguns. His motive is unknown.
