Police Say Children Were Not The Target In The San Bernardino Elementary School Shooting — Get The Latest From The Press Conference
Only one person was targeted in the latest San Bernardino shooting, police say.
Earlier Monday, we reported that two adults were killed and two children injured in a shooting at North Park Elementary School in California.
But according to the San Bernardino Police Department, the two children caught in the line of fire were not believed to be the targets of the apparent murder-suicide.
Authorities say the unidentified shooter reportedly checked in the front school office and signed in where he was known by school staff. He was given permission by the teacher to enter the classroom.
The man then shot the female teacher with a handgun in the classroom, where two students were unfortunately standing too close.
