San Bernardino Elementary School Shooting Leaves Two Dead
A shooting at an elementary school classroom in San Bernardino, California has left two adults dead and two students injured on Wednesday, according to law enforcement.
Police officials said that a shooting at North Park elementary school – which may have been a “murder-suicide” – has affected at least four victims, including a teacher.
The extent of the students’ injuries was not immediately clear Monday morning. Jarrod Burguan, chief of the San Bernardino police department, wrote: “We believe this to be a murder suicide. Happened in a classroom. Two students have been transported to the hospital.”
The shooting is believed to be a domestic dispute, a San Bernardino City Unified school district spokeswoman, Maria Garcia, told a local news station, KNBC.
“We believe the teacher knew who the shooter was,” she said.
Burguan wrote on Twitter that there was a large police presence at the site of the shooting and urged people to stay away from the area. Students, he added, were being transported to Cajon high school nearby.
