4 Victims Reported After Elementary School Shooting in San Bernardino; Shooter Possibly Down: Police Chief
At least four victims have been located after a shooter walked on to the North Park Elementary School campus in San Bernardino and opened fire in a possible murder-suicide, officials said.
The shooter was also possibly down, according to a tweet from San Bernardino Police Department Chief Jarrod Burguan, who said the information was preliminary.
Burguan later tweeted that the shooting was a suspected murder-suicide. Two students were transported to a local hospital after the incident, which took place in a classroom, he said.
The San Bernardino County Fire first confirmed there were multiple victims at approximately 10:45 a.m., but did not provide a count.
Students at Cal State University San Bernardino were asked to shelter in place until further notice amid the report of an active shooter at the elementary school, which is located a few blocks from campus, according to the college.
The elementary school is located at 5378 N. H St.
The chief said students at the school were being taken to Cajon High School “for safety.”
The high school is located 1200 W. Hill Dr.
North Park parents should are asked to go to the high school and have a picture ID in order to pick up their students, the San Bernardino City Unified School District tweeted.
In addition to North Park, Cajon Elementary School and Hillside Elementary School were also placed on lockdown, according to the School District.
