A shooting at a San Bernardino elementary school has left two adults and one child killed and another student injured in an apparent murder-suicide. Shots were fired at approximately 10:30am inside North Park Elementary School. One of the deceased is the suspect, according to initial reports from NBC News.
“We believe this to be a murder-suicide,” San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said, according to NBC News. “Happened in a classroom. Two students have been transported to the hospital.” The threat to the school has been “neutralized,” according to police.

L.A. Times reports North Park students were later sent to Cajon High School, where they are being picked up by their parents. The two wounded victims have been rushed to the hospital, where NBC is reporting they were both in critical condition. However, ABC World News confirmed Monday evening that one of the children, an 8-year-old in a special needs class, died from his injuries.
San Bernardino Police Department have identified Cedric Anderson, a 53-year-old resident of Riverside, California, as the suspect in the shooting. Karen Smith, his estranged wife, was one of the victims. She was 53.

This isn’t the first time San Bernardino has been rocked by a major shooting. In December 2015, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik killed 14 people during a Christmas party at a county health department building. The shooting made international news.
Update 7:59pm ET: Updated to include information from the San Bernardino Police Department about the suspect and victims.
