San Bernardino school closed following shooting
SAN BERNARDINO - An elementary school in San Bernardino that was the scene of a murder-suicide is closed for the time being.
School district officials say classes at North Park Elementary are canceled for at least Tuesday and Wednesday.
Counselors are being made available at a nearby middle school for students, family and staff.
The closure comes a day after a man walked into his estranged wife's classroom and opened fire, killing her and an 8-year-old student. He then fatally shot himself.
A 9-year-old student who was wounded in the shooting remains hospitalized Tuesday. He and the boy who died were standing behind their special-education teacher, Karen Elaine Smith.
Police say the shooter, Cedric Anderson, had been estranged from Smith and had a history of weapons, domestic violence and possible drug charges.
