The assistant sheriff in Northern California says a gunman opened fire "without provocation" in a rural town, killing four people and wounding 10, before police fatally shot him.
  
Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston says investigators are trying to determine a motive in the shootings Tuesday in the small community of Tehama Ranch Reserve.
  
Johnston says the gunman shot a person, stole a pickup truck and went on a shooting rampage. He says after crashing the truck, the suspect hijacked a second vehicle and kept shooting people at random, including children.
  
There were seven shooting scenes in all. Johnston says police have recovered a semi-automatic rifle and two handguns.
  
Johnston says the gunman was involved in a domestic violence incident Monday.
