A second child and a female adult were shot in a truck, authorities said.
Johnston said he was told the suspected shooter was killed by law enforcement gunfire.
A shooter opened fire around 8 AM local time at a home in Rancho Tehama, north of Sacramento, before wounding at least three students at the Rancho Tehama Elementary School.
The shooting coincides with a flareup of the long-running debate on America's epidemic of gun violence and the ready accessibility of high-powered weapons, less than 10 days after a gunman shot dead 26 people at a church in Texas. There are just four teachers on staff; each teaches at least two grades, according to the school newsletter.
"It was very clear at the onset that we had a subject that was randomly picking targets", he said.
But police said Tuesday's incident spanned multiple shooting scenes involving multiple victims, and that three deaths, including the shooter, stemmed from the shootings.
