Massive vigil held at North Park Elementary School in San Bernardino

9-year-old injured in San Bernardino elementary school shooting ‘recovering well

Family members often visited their spouses at the San Bernardino, California, school, and school staff recognized Anderson as Smith's new husband.

This undated photo released by the San Bernardino Police Department shows Cedric Anderson, 53.

Monday morning, Cedric Anderson, 53, of Riverside, went to the elementary school where his wife, Karen Elaine Smith, 53, a 10-year veteran of the school district, was working.

Jeffrey Imbriani and his grandfather Ruben Gutierrez describe their experiences Tuesday, April 11, 2017, after a teacher and student were shot to death Monday at North Park Elementary School in San Bernardino, Calif. Imbriani said he was friends with Jonathan Martinez who was killed along with his teacher, Karen Smith.

The family of Jonathan Martinez, the 8-year-old student killed in the shooting, did not wish to speak publicly, Marsden said.

Candlelight vigils, prayer services and community gatherings are helping the city get through its latest tragedy. "You know, it's not a scary place to be, and just kind of help him process more and re-experience what happened to hopefully make this as healthy an experience as can be given the circumstances".

In all, Anderson fired 10 shots from a Smith and Wesson.357 revolver, stopping to reload, police said.

"She effectively kept her private life private", Burguan said.

Smith told family members that Anderson had also threatened her after she moved out, but she didn't take him seriously and thought he was just seeking attention, the police chief said.

Williams syndrome is a genetic condition that is characterized by cardiovascular issues and development delays, and it affects an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 people in the United States, according to the Williams Syndrome Association. Jonathan had survived a previous heart surgery.

"Unlike disorders that can make connecting with your child hard, children with Williams syndrome tend to be social, friendly and endearing", Marsden said. On Facebook, Anderson posted happy images of the couple enjoying date nights and smiling in selfies.

Another boy was also struck by gunfire but is expected to recover.

Police said Martinez and a 9-year-old student were shot by accident.

While grieving for their only son, the boy's parents asked school officials to tell the world about the condition that landed their child in the special-needs classroom, where he was killed.
