At least two adults, including a teacher, were killed and two students injured in a classroom shooting on Monday at a Southern California elementary school, police and fire officials said. Allaying fears of any further threat to North Park School, Police chief Jarrod Burguan confirmed on Twitter that the investigators believe “the suspect is down”.

The injured students were immediately airlifted to a hospital after the attack, which is being described as a domestic dispute, San Bernardino City Unified School District spokeswoman Maria Garcia told local channel. According to police, their conditions were not immediately known.

“We believe the teacher knew who the shooter was,” Garcia said, adding that all other students were safe and they were being taken to a local college campus.

Soon after the incident, aerial footage showed students gathered on a field and a blacktop basketball court inside the campus as school buses lined up. Meanwhile, panicked parents ran up a sidewalk seeking information about their children but much to their anguish they were not able to learn immediately about what happened at the school.
