Elaine Smith (53) was a special-education teacher at North Park School, San Bernardino, California. During one of the elementary school classes, her husband, Cedric Anderson, walked in and opened fire, killing her and an eight year old student, Jonathan Martinez, after which he re-loaded the gun and killed himself. The murder-suicide spread panic across the city, especially among the parents and grandparents of students in the school who were shocked at the news of the incident.
A nine-year old student was also critically wounded, however he has been stabilized in the hospital.
San Bernardino, a city of 216,000 people about 60 miles east of Los Angeles, was the site of a December 2015 terror attack that killed 14 people and wounded 22 others at a meeting of San Bernardino County employees.
I can’t even imagine what had gone through the kids during that moment in the class. They would be have been terribly afraid. I wish people are able to show their support for the kids, and also pray for the injured. May the people who died rest in peace.
