California elementary school shooting: 2 adults, 1 student dead


North Park Elementary School will be closed for at least the next two days, Marsden added.

The boy was identified as Jonathan Martinez, who was airlifted to Loma Linda Medical Center after the shooting, KTLA reported.

The suspected gunman, 53-year-old Cedric Anderson, of Riverside, shot his wife, 53-year-old Elaine Smith.

Two students were also injured, and are listed in critical condition at area hospitals, Madden said.

In the nearby Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District, students at Miraleste Intermediate School participated in active shooter training with deputies from the Lomita sheriff's station just last week, said Superintendent Don Austin.

"The children we do not believe were targeted", police Capt. Ron Maass told said. He died of self-inflicted wounds at the scene.

Officials said parents could expect hours-long delays in reuniting with their children as identifications are verified and students are interviewed as witnesses.

"I'm glad my daughter is fine", said Angelique Youmans, 31, as she hugged her 10-year-old daughter. Police said the children were not the gunman's targets.

North Park Elementary School students and parents are reunited at Cajon High School after a shooting at their school on April 10, 2017, in San Bernardino.

Alberta Terrell said she cried with relief when she was told that a family friend saw her 9-year-old granddaughter getting safely onto a bus.

A school police officer is assigned to every LAUSD high school and numerous middle schools, said LAUSD spokeswoman Monica Carazo. But eventually she heard from someone who had seen her children and assured her they were safe.

Marina Ramos told KABC that she rushed to the school to try to pick up her grandson. "But I won't feel good until I hold my kids", she said.

Husband-and-wife attackers Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik died in a gun battle with authorities later that day.

In December 2015, a newlywed couple apparently inspired by the Islamic State group opened fire on an office party in San Bernardino, killing 14 people and injuring 22 others. Students gathered on a field near a line of school buses and other vehicles, including fire trucks.

Monday's shooting was the latest tragedy for a city that has struggled in recent years with more than its share of them.

San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said Anderson had a criminal history, including domestic violence arrests from a previous relationship as well as weapons and drug charges. It was hit hard by the great recession, seeing rises in unemployment and violent crime.
