Teacher, 8 year old student die in San Bernardino shooting
A teacher and an 8 year old student died in an apparent murder-suicide inside an elementary school in San Bernardino, South California. Investigators say that the suspect is down and there is no further threat to the North Park School.
A man opened fire with a pistol on Monday before killing himself. Two other students were injured in the incident.
San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said the shooting at North Park Elementary School in San Bernardino, about 65 miles east of Los Angeles, was an apparent murder-suicide.
Investigators worked to confirm the identities of the gunman and the dead woman to determine their relationship, if any, and whether the shooting stemmed from a domestic dispute, police Captain Ron Maas said at a news conference.
The wounded students were hospitalized but their medical conditions were not immediately known. Maas said they were not related to either of the dead adults.
School district secretary Vicki Wood confirmed the dead woman was the teacher and that she was teaching a special-education class at the time. Police said she and the gunman were the only adults in the classroom.
