2 adults killed, 2 kids injured in American elementary school shooting

2 adults killed, 2 kids injured in American elementary school shooting

Multiple people were down in a shooting Monday morning (GMT) at an elementary school in San Bernardino, California, in the United States of America.

Two adults were found dead in a classroom and two students are in unknown condition after a shooter walked on to the North Park Elementary School campus in San Bernardino on Monday and opened fire in what the police chief characterized as a suspected murder-suicide.

As reported by the local media, San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said four victims were being treated and a suspect was possibly down as well.

The gunfire occurred just after 10:30 a.m. at North Park School, at 5378 N. H Street.
The San Bernardino County Fire Department reported multiple gunshot wound victims and a triage had been set up.
“It’s a developing situation,” said Eric Sherwin, a fire department spokesman.
The shooting comes as San Bernardino as the city has seen a major spike in violence.
There were 62 slayings in San Bernardino in 2016 — a 41% increase from the year before. It was the deadliest year in the city since 1995.
The violence is an open wound on a city trying to recover from a prolonged bankruptcy and the 2015 terror attack. And it didn’t abate for the holidays — five people were shot and wounded on Christmas Day. One was killed the morning after.
