A special education teacher and one of her students, an 8-year-old boy, were shot dead by her estranged husband on Monday when he opened fire in her classroom before killing himself at a San Bernardino elementary school in California, police said.
A second student was wounded by the gunman who, authorities said, had a criminal history that included domestic violence and weapons charges.
Police said the two students, both boys, were believed to have been inadvertently caught in the gunfire as bystanders to Monday’s shooting.
San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan called the shooting at the North Park Elementary School an apparent murder-suicide.
