Four people have been shot at a San Bernardino, California, elementary school in what police are calling a murder-suicide.

San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan tweeted the shooting happened in a classroom at Northpark Elementary School around 10:30 a.m. Pacific Time. The Associated Press is reporting a man walked into his estranged wife's classroom, shooting Karen Elaine Smith, 53.

An 8-year-old boy was also killed, while a 9-year-old student was critically wounded. The boys were standing behind Smith at the time of the shooting.

The suspect in the shooting has been identified as 53-year-old Cedric Anderson, police said. He shot himself after shooting Smith and the two boys.
