The school district’s office is also sharing news and information that students at the SUSD school are safe on social media.

“We have sent out a Facebook message on our Facebook page and have copied that same message to the local school forums on Facebook and any comment on the news pages,” SUSD Public Information Officer Lee Morrell said.

Two adults were killed in the shooting and two individuals, possibly students, were injured and transported to local hospital in unknown conditions, according to San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan.

San Bernardino Police said they believe the suspect is down and that here is no further threat to the school.

“Our thoughts and prayers are absolutely with that North Park,” Morrell said.
