Teacher killed, two students injured in San Bernardino elementary school shooting, police say

In a latest school rages, a man and a woman were killed and two children were wounded in a suspected murder-suicide at an elementary school in Southern California.
San Bernardino police Capt. Ron Maass said during a news conference said that the woman, who was a teacher at North Park Elementary School, was killed inside a classroom. The man then shot himself.
The students were listed in critical condition, he said.
“The suspect had come to the classroom to visit the adult female,” Maass told reporters. “We believe the two children were unfortunate recipients of injuries.”
“We believe the suspect is down and there’s no further threat,” he wrote.
Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, said “Today, yet another elementary school community was shaken by gun violence. Our thoughts are with the students, faculty and families affected by the shooting. Educators should not have to fear being shot at work. Parents should not have to fear their children not returning home from school. There have been more than 200 school shootings in less than five years, and lockdown drills have been become part of standard safety practice. There are solutions out there  too often we rely on thoughts and prayers to do the work our politicians refuse to do. Our volunteers and gun violence survivors will not rest until our leaders put our childrens safety first and we change the culture of gun violence in this country.”
Since 2013, there have been 220 school shootings in the United States according to Everytown for Gun Safety, a group that tracks gun violence in the United States. The group reported that, on an average day in the United States, seven children and teenagers ages 19 or under are killed with guns.
