BREAKING: Another Terror Attack in San Bernardino Shooting?
Two Dead, Two Critically Injured in what police tentatively call a “murder-suicide.”
Police have not yet been able to determine the suspect’s motive. But in the wake of the 2015 terror attack in San Bernardino, it’s not surprising that our minds go there.
The first call came into 911 operators at 10:27 a.m. west coast time. A gunman walked into a classroom at North Park Elementary School in San Bernardino, killed the teacher, and then shot two students before killing himself. All that was missing was the shooter yelled, “Allahu akbar!”
Generally, when the details are sketchy, we’ve learned that the media plays the political correctness game of, “No the shooter isn’t a Muslim.”
That game is being played here, as witness accounts of the situation are not yet available. We don’t know what grade level the wounded students are from, or any details about the teacher killed.
A local hospital is treating the two wounded students who are currently listed in critical condition, according to San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan. However, Fox News reports that the teacher did know the suspect.
The school remains on lockdown at this hour, while police continue the process of clearing classrooms.
Outside the school, parents desperately search for their children, all of whom were evacuated to the playground. One by one, buses are transporting the children to Cajon High School where their parents can pick them up.
Parents have more than Muslims to be concerned about when it comes to murder in San Bernardino.
In the year following the 2015 terror attack by Muslim extremists that killed 14 people and injured 22, the murder rate in San Bernardino skyrocketed to its highest level in more than 20 years. The besieged city had bested Chicago’s murder rate by September of last year.
And what of the legacy of school shootings from the Era of Obama. As we have reported, school shootings in the era of Obama almost numbered more than all other presidents combined. Why bother with an education, when you aren’t even sure you will survive the gauntlet of Leftist education.
Thankfully, in this incident, the worry is over. At least for today.
According to police, the suspect is down and there remain no further threats to the school. In the wake of the tragegy, North Park Elementary will be closed for at least two days as the investigation continues. FBI agents head the investigation in tandem with police detectives on scene.
In a news conference still going on at this hour, San Bernardino Mayor R. Carey Davis called on all Americans to pray for the City of San Bernardino in the wake of this tragedy.
