At the very least, no children were physically harmed.

As we reported, on Tuesday, a man identified as Luvelle Kennon (pictured above) allegedly held 70-year-old first grade teacher Linda Montgomery hostage in a classroom at Castle View Elementary School in Riverside, CA.

According to People, the almost seven-hour ordeal ended when authorities entered the room using flash-bang grenades, and shot the suspect, whose daughter reportedly attends the school. Kennon was transported to the hospital, and later died, said a Riverside Police press release.

While the teacher is safe, authorities say she is "OK, but traumatized," KTLA 5 reports.

It is unclear specifically why the 27-year-old was shot, why he allegedly held the educator against her will, if the two had previous contact, and whether he was armed.

The school will remain closed for the rest of this week.

UPDATE 8:18 P.M. EST: The teacher being held hostage has been identified by family as 70-year-old Linda Montgomery.


What a nightmare!

Castle View Elementary School in Riverside, California, became the site of a hostage situation Tuesday afternoon; thankfully no children are involved.

According to reports from inside the school, a father had some sort of violent altercation with a male staff member, possibly giving him a bloody nose.

The man, who according to family members has a daughter in first grade at the school, barricaded himself into a classroom with a female teacher just after 11 a.m.

It's unclear if the man is armed. A small amount of smoke was seen coming from the classroom, but it since dissipated and isn't believed to be an incendiary device.

The man's uncle told ABC7 he has "no access" to weapons and is just having "an emotional breakdown." They apparently took his car keys away, but he was able to get to the school anyway. See that interview (below):
