BREAKING: Possible Murder-Suicide Attack At San Bernadino Elementary School; 4 Injured

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — A fire official says multiple people have been shot at an elementary school in San Bernardino.

San Bernardino County fire spokesman Eric Sherwin says the shooting happened Monday morning at the North Park School in San Bernardino.

Sherwin says numerous firefighters and police officers are headed to the scene.

According to KTLA 5, 2 students and a teacher were shot and injured in what appears to be a murder-suicide.

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 school has been evacuated as of the time of this report. It is not yet clear though whether or not the situation has been completely contained, as law enforcement and fire department activity is still active throughout the surrounding area.

Parents are advised to pick their kids up at the high school nearby, where students have been transported to.


Cal State Sen Bernadino is being used as an evacuation location.

As of the time of this report, 2 students and a teacher have bee hospitalized; the shooter is also believed to be down as well, but it is unclear what that means so far.
