Four more injured in the shooting at Red Bluff city

At least two people were killed and four wounded in a shooting at a Walmart distribution centre in California, US media reported on Saturday.

A local newspaper, the Record Searchlight, quoted a witness who said he heard what sounded like gunfire from a semi-automatic weapon at the facility in the city of Red Bluff.

The Searchlight and other media including CNN cited hospital officials on the toll.

Red Bluff city manager Rick Crabtree told CNN that a car rammed the facility around 3pm local time, causing a fire which he said was not significant.

"There was an active shooter, he was shot, last I heard he was on his way to the hospital," Crabtree was quoted as saying.

A Walmart spokesman told CNN they were aware of the situation and working with law enforcement to investigate, but could offer no further details.

According to Allison Hendrickson, manager of media relations for Dignity Health North State, the St. Elizabeth Community Hospital in Red Bluff, part of Dignity Health, received a total of six patients from the Walmart distribution centre.

Two died and the other four were in fair condition, she told CNN, but could not share details regarding the nature of their injuries or ages.
