Authorities Outline Horrific Events Of Deadly Calif. School Shooting
During a press conference Monday afternoon, authorities in San Bernardino, Calif. outlined the events of a deadly shooting at North Park Elementary School.
From what police can tell, an adult male entered the campus before 10:30 a.m. PDT through the front office with no visible weapon.
A short while later, he opened fired on a teacher in a classroom, killing her and injuring two children in a spray of bullets from his handgun. Police do not believe the children were targeted, and they are not related to the teacher or shooter.
Authorities believe the gunman then killed himself. No suicide note was found in the classroom.
Police do not have any knowledge yet of domestic issues between the teacher and shooter, but they are investigating domestic violence as a possibility.
Both injured children remain hospitalized.
The identity of the suspect has not been released, but police are searching his home now for clues.
The school has a closed campus, and people are only allowed in with proper ID and a reason for being there. That indicates that the shooter may have been known by the school.
North Fork does not have its own security personnel like area middle schools and high schools. Police say they responded in seven minutes of the "shots fired" phone call.
Please pray the victims, their families, and the other students!
