Classes to resume a week after shooting at California school
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — An elementary school in San Bernardino that was the scene of a murder-suicide is reopening.
School district officials say classes at North Park Elementary will resume Monday, a week after the killings.
Security will be tightened, and counselors will be made available for students and staff.
North Park has been closed since April 10, when a man walked into his estranged wife's classroom and opened fire, killing her and an 8-year-old student. He then fatally shot himself.
A 9-year-old student who was wounded went home from a hospital on Friday.
He and the boy who died were standing near their special-education teacher, Karen Elaine Smith.
Police say the shooter, Cedric Anderson, had been unsuccessfully trying to convince Smith to resume the relationship following a breakup just weeks into their marriage.
