Shooting at elementary school leaves 2 dead, 2 injured

Garcia told KTLA the situation is believed to be "contained".

At least two people - both adults - have reportedly been killed in a classroom shooting at a school in Southern California.

One of the adults was a teacher, according to San Bernardino Unified School District spokeswoman Maria Garcia.

Another two people, possibly students - were apparently hit by gunfire. Police were searching the man's house on Monday afternoon.

"This is a tragic incident that has befallen our city", Madden said.

Authorities from the San Bernardino Police Department, California Highway Patrol, San Bernardino County Sheriff's Office and school police responded to the shootings.

The San Bernardino County Fire Department reported multiple gunshot victims and a triage area had been set up. "If we be patient, they're going to bring our kids to us". Husband-and-wife shooters Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik were later killed in a gunbattle with authorities. "I hope she is OK", Hendran said.

His relationship to the teacher was not immediately clear.

Elementary schools in the USA are for children aged 4-14.

The relieved parents craned their necks scanning for their son's blue and white striped T-shirt. "He was crying. He's scared", she said. "It's a awful incident".

Mr Burguan said other students had been transported to nearby Cajon High School.

"Especially after December 2 we actually took a closer look at all of our campuses and what we can do to increase student security and campus safety". "Your children's safety is the primary importance, and just be patient with the process as the children are leaving the school".

The weapon was a handgun, police said. The identity of the suspected attacker has not been released because police have not yet confirmed it.

"Our school campuses are obviously closed campuses during the school day ... the time of 10:28 a.m. would have been well into the school day". They can be found at the soccer fields on the east end of the college campus.

Once a major rail hub and citrus producer, San Bernardino filed for bankruptcy in 2012 after struggling to pay its employees despite steep cuts to the budget.

Police are still trying to inform one child's family of their involvement in the tragedy. "Thank you so much, God bless you".
