In the United States, a man opened fire with a pistol in a classroom at a Southern California elementary school last night fatally shooting the teacher and wounding two students before killing himself. San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said the two children were believed to have been caught in the gunfire unintentionally as bystanders to the violence, which unfolded several miles from the scene of a December 2015 shooting rampage that killed 14 people.
Police Chief said the shooting at North Park Elementary School in San Bernardino, about 65 miles east of Los Angeles, was an apparent murder-suicide. Police worked to confirm the identities of the gunman and the dead woman to determine their relationship, if any, and whether the shooting stemmed from a domestic dispute. The wounded students were hospitalized. School authorities confirmed the dead woman was the teacher and the gunman were the only adults in the classroom.
