SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) – The Latest on a shooting at an elementary school in San Bernardino (all times local):
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.
Some six weeks earlier, 53-year-old Cedric Anderson was a newlywed, calling his 53-year-old wife Karen Smith an “angel” on social media. But Smith left him about a month and a half after their marriage.
