911 caller in San Bernardino school shooting: 'I'm scared'

Nolan Brandy, 9, who was shot on April 10, 2017 inside his classroom at North Park Elementary School in San Bernardino is recovering well.

A gunman, who has been identified as Cedric Charles Anderson, 53, of Riverside, California, opened fire in an elementary school classroom Monday in San Bernardino, killing his estranged wife, a teacher, and an 8-year-old student before fatally shooting himself, police say. Sykes said Anderson, who had been a pastor for 17 years, "tried to butter her up" by saying all sorts of good things to her, but Smith was intent on leaving him for good.

"So in my mind, I'm thinking 'He's shooting anybody and everybody, '" she said.

High school students will directly present those to North Park students, while the others will be hung and displayed at North Park, Payne said. They said he was recovering better than they had expected. "It's not a marathon, it's a sprint". "Our hearts are broken", said Dale Marsden, the superintendent of the San Bernardino City Unified School District.

Proceeds from the Hope for North Park Elementary School Fund will be allocated in coordination with district leadership to support school and community recovery efforts that will be needed long after the news of the event has faded.

An employee at the school saw Cedric Anderson and recognized him as teacher Karen Smith's husband.

Dispatcher: At North Park Elementary.

School staffers were unaware of the marital issues.

Debra Natera told the board her child has attended North Park since kindergarten and now is in fifth grade.

The shooting took place in a classroom.

As a memorial continued to grow on the sidewalk outside of the elementary school, parents and colleagues remembered Smith as a dedicated educator who cared deeply for her students and was devoted to education. She moved out of their home in March and went to live with other family, police said.

"She's the most private person I've ever worked with", she said of Smith.

"There's just no way to be sure of the security", Jones said.

"I'm gonna hug her".

"She said he raised the gun to her - and it clicked". One is grown, and the 17- and 13-year-olds are home-schooled for reasons unrelated to security. Police don't think the two kids who were hit were being targeted, but that they were simply standing too close to Smith. "I was maybe surprised by how fast it was". "I'm happy with every decision and especially with how involved we are".

And for the first time since the shooting, she returned to campus with her coworkers on Thursday.

The Snowdrift staff sends their condolences to the families affected.

"Please continue to pray for him and also for Jonathan Martinez's and Karen Smith's families", the family said in the statement.

"We're not going to be 100 percent safe, in this society", he said.
