Three people have been killed and one more injured in a school shooting incident in Southern California’s San Bernardino.
The incident took place on Monday at the North Park Elementary School when a man fatally shot a female teacher, later identified as his wife, and injured two children before taking his own life.
One of the injured children succumbed to her injuries in the hospital and the other is in a critical condition.
San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said that we “believe the suspect is down and there’s no further threat.”
Police have noted that they believe the children were not the target of the gunman and were injured due to their proximity to the murdered women.
Following the incident, students were evacuated to another school.
