Over a year after the December 2, 2015 shooting at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California left 14 dead and 21 wounded, the Associated Press reported of a shooting that took place North Park Elementary School Monday morning in the same city. With the city yet again making headlines for a shooting, many people may be wondering just how far the San Bernardino Elementary School is from the other shooting that took place in 2015 — however, there does not yet seem to be any link between the two events, which the San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan confirmed via Twitter appears to be a murder-suicide.
UPDATE: An 8-year-old student was confirmed dead in the aftermath of the shooting at North Park Elementary School. Jonathan Martinez was pronounced dead after being airlifted to the hospital. According to San Bernardino County Police Department Chief Jarrod Burguan, two adults also died in what is believed to be a murder suicide. North Park Elementary School teacher Karen Elaine Smith was reportedly shot and killed by her husband, who then killed himself. Another student is in the hospital in stable condition.
EARLIER: Burguan confirmed on Twitter that there are four confirmed victims; two adults were found deceased in a classroom, and two other victims, who may possibly be students, were hospitalized, where their current condition is unknown. North Park Elementary School is on 5378 N. H Street, San Bernardino, California, at least an eight mile drive from Inland Regional Center, where 2015's mass shooting took place. The distance between the two locations is depicted on this map, with the elementary school at the top and the community center at the bottom. At this time, no connections have been made between the two incidents.
Burguan confirmed that police are still in the the area, although the shooter is down and the threat is believed to have been neutralized.
