On November 14, 2017, a man went on a shooting rampage in Rancho Tehama, California. He was targeting public places and random people, set out to kill as many as possible. He approached the local elementary school where the children were outdoors. The students and staff acted before anything fatal could happen. When the elementary school property was under attack, students and staff acted quickly to run inside, away from the threat. The staff and students performed an enhanced lockdown and the shooter was unable to gain access to the school so he shot through the classroom doors. There were non-fatal injuries from glass, but no deaths. The shooter gave up as he was unable to gain access to the elementary school and was later killed by police.
Had it not been for the students and staff acting quickly, running inside away from the outside threat, and reacting, the outcome could have been much worse. We are incredibly grateful and proud that nobody was fatally injured.
