RED BLUFF, Calif. - Authorities say a gunman tried to get into rooms at a California elementary school with the intent of shooting children but that workers initiated a lockdown that saved lives.
  
Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston says school officials heard shots being fired and immediately locked down Rancho Tehama School in a tiny, rural town Tuesday.
  
He says it was "monumental" that school workers took the action they did and there is no doubt in his mind they saved the lives of countless children.
  
Authorities say the gunman, who hasn't been identified, killed four people and wounded at least 10 others, including a child after he opened fire at the school.
