When will North Park Elementary School reopen in San Bernardino?


Parents could faced hours-long wait before reuniting with students after shooting, according to school officials.

He said he believed Anderson was known to the front office.

Emergency personnel respond to a shooting inside North Park School Elementary School on Monday, April 10, 2017, in San Bernardino, California. They were told to go to a nearby high school where they would be reunited. The students were not targeted but were standing behind Smith when Anderson opened fire, Burguan noted.

Penalber's 9-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter attend the school.

Anderson's wifeposted on her page that she and the alleged shooter marrying in January. "They've only been married for a few months, and they've been separated for about the last month, month-and-a-half, roughly, when this incident took place", he said.

Jeanette Gordon, who lives near the elementary school, said she sensed something bad had happened as soon as she heard the blare of sirens filling her neighborhood. That makes a happy marriage'.

A post on what appeared to be Karen Smith's Facebook page invited friends to the couple's wedding in January. There were a total of 15 students and two aides in the classroom at the time, he added.

"Tragedy has again befallen our city", San Bernardino Police Lt. Mike Madden said at a news conference Monday. Several parents interviewed on TV said their children were too young to carry mobile phones, so they had not been able to contact them to see if they were safe.

"We believe this to be a murder suicide", he tweeted.

It's not clear what Smith was teaching at the time of the shooting, but these programs focus on helping children develop social skills and self-control in a less intensive setting so that the child can fulfill his or her academic potential, according to wiseGEEK.

Unfortunately, one of the children shot in the incident, Jonathan Martinez, has died after he was struck by a bullet in the shooting.

The students were wounded because they were near the teacher when the shooting started, officials said.

This item has been corrected to show the woman's name is Karen Elaine Smith, not Elaine Smith. Police loaded the students on to waiting school buses.

A number of parents were visibly flustered at the scene as they awaited the arrivals of their children.

The gunfire occurred just after 10:30 a.m.at North Park School, 5378 N. H Street.

San Bernardino police said the children were not the gunman's targets, but were 'the unfortunate victims of injuries from being in close proximity' to the instructor reported reported KTLA.

Marsden said general policy for adult visitors to classrooms involve showing identification and stating objective of visit. "The adult female was in the classroom". The shooters were later killed in a shootout with police.

The weapon was a handgun, police said.

Authorities have said the suspect and another adult are dead.

"We believe the suspect is down and there's no further threat".

At the time, before the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida, it was the deadliest attack on United States soil since September 11, 2001.

All the injured - possibly three students and a teacher - have been rushed to a local medic, says local media.

San Bernardino was the site of an infamous mass shooting with terror links that killed 14 and wounded 22 in December 2015.

At least two students have been airlifted to a hospital.

The San Bernardino County Fire Department reported multiple gunshot victims and a triage area had been set up.

Numerous parents of the school's 600 students were at home when the blaring sounds of emergency vehicle sirens shattered the morning quiet of their neighbourhood.
