A little over an hour ago a school shooting took place at an Elementary School in San Bernadino, California. The reports are that 2 adults are now dead and 2 young students have been life-flighted to a hospital in critical condition. No other injuries at this time are being reported.
The motive appears to be a domestic dispute between a teacher and her ex-boyfriend.
According to MSN :
“We believe this to be a murder-suicide,” San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan tweeted. “Happened in a class room. Two students have been transported to the hospital.”
Burguan later tweeted: “We believe the suspect is down and there’s no further threat.”
The gunfire occurred at 10:27 a.m. in a classroom at North Park Elementary School, 5378 N. H Street. The San Bernardino County Fire Department reported multiple gunshot victims and a triage area had been set up. “It’s a developing situation,” said Eric Sherwin, a Fire Department spokesman. School officials said the shooting was “isolated to the campus.” Student were evacuated to Cal State San Bernardino’s physical education building, where they can access bathrooms and water, said university spokesman Joe Gutierrez.
Parents were directed to go to Cajon High School, where officials will verify their identity before sending them to Cal State San Bernardino to pick up their children, Gutierrez said.
Not to many details have been released and officials are keeping them close during the investigation. Parents are terrified, but urged to remain as calm as possible to not create any further chaos in the pick-up locations.
Our prayers go out to the victims of this newest violent crime.
