San Bernardino school tries to recover after shooting

Anderson has been identified by authorities as the person who shot to death Karen Elaine Smith, 53, identified as his wife, as she taught a special education class at North Park Elementary School in San Bernardino, Calif., Monday, April 10, 2017. And he wanted him to have good associations with the place before it reopens next week. She enjoys creating original stories and telling them on the spot and says things like "You're looking at a professional book writer".

Karen Smith told her loved ones that she didn't necessarily take the threats from her new husband seriously but thought Cedric Anderson was reaching out for attention, Police Chief Jarrod Burguan told reporters.

Smith and Anderson had a short marriage before the shooting, which a San Bernardino Unified School District official said stemmed from a domestic violence dispute.

According to CBS, the fatally wounded boy was Jonathan Martinez, who lived with a rare genetic condition known as Williams syndrome (WS).

"My heart and prayers go out to the victims of this frightful act and to all students and members of the North Park Elementary School community". Gutierrez brought his grandson back to the school to show him how community members were coming together after the shooting and to reinforce that the school is safe. He went to her classroom and "without saying anything" shot her with a large-calibre revolver, Mr Burguan said.

Anderson, 53, fired off 10 shots from a.357 Magnum.

The newspaper said Natalie Anderson said Cedric had talked her into abandoning the restraining order. However, Jonathan and one other student, a 9-year-old, were rushed to an area hospital with gunshot wounds, according to ABC News.

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley booked into jail, resigns
When I took the oath of office in 2011 and then again in 2015, I was prepared for this day, but never desired or expected it. Robert Bentley formally resigned from office Monday afternoon as he faced impeachment hearings earlier in the day.

Sykes said her daughter was a dedicated teacher who took up the profession about 10 years ago, after her four children grew up. Jonathan died before making it to surgery, while the 9-year-old was reported to be in stable condition after initially described to be in critical condition.

"Unlike disorders that can make connecting with your child hard, children with Williams syndrome tend to be social, friendly and endearing", Marsden said.

A special-needs teacher slain by her estranged husband at a San Bernardino elementary school is being remembered as someone who loved children. Authorities have not released his name.

Marie Cabreras told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Karen Smith was an excellent teacher whose whole life was all about kids and helping them build a future.

It's clear that Smith will be missed by both her students and her family.

Nine-year-old Marissa Perez said she got under a table as soon as she saw the gunman enter her classroom Monday.

"He told her he would throw her out the window. He started reading and doing long math", Valles said. "I will think of him as a very best friend". She's visiting God. So is Jonathan. In fact, The Trace - a nonprofit journalism site that covers firearms - reports that a woman is shot and killed by a current or former romantic partner every 16 hours, and that a woman is five times more likely to be killed if the abuser has access to a gun.
