Leon and Rachel Brandy, the parents of the surviving North Park Elementary School shooting victim Nolan Brandy, shared a photo of their son as he recovers at the hospital.
Officials provided those details at a news conference on Tuesday, a day after the episode sparked fear throughout the school community in the California city all-too-familiar with high-profile violence. Jonathan Martinez, an 8-year-old student in Smith's class, was also shot and died on the way to a nearby hospital, an unidentified 9-year-old student was also shot but is now in critical condition.
Eight-year-old Jonathan Martinez was airlifted to a hospital to he later died.
"He is in stable condition", San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan. The shooters were later killed in a shootout with police. Authorities say he was know to school staff and simply walked in, telling them he needed to drop something off to his wife.
Burguan said Anderson had been arrested four times, from 1982 to 2013, on charges including weapons, domestic violence and theft - but none of those cases resulted in convictions. "Until they were married and then he showed the other side of him".
At the same time, those with the syndrome often are highly social and have "striking verbal abilities" and an affinity for music, the superintendent said.
Cedric Anderson and Karen Smith appeared happy in a honeymoon video posted on Facebook, but by March the marriage was in serious trouble.
"He came in, and very, very quickly upon entering the classroom started shooting", Burguan told reporters. And I don't know if that just reached the boiling point or what it was.
"We are literally heartbroken, and it's going to be process", Downing said.
She and husband Cedric Anderson, had separated just weeks after their January wedding.
"She effectively kept her private life private", Burguan said.
In an incident from a month later, the woman said Anderson woke up angry because she had future plans to go to karaoke with a neighbor, the document said.
Investigators found a note that made reference to the relationship, feeling dishonored and "moving forward with no regrets", Burguan said. The police chief said the note did not contain information that would suggest it was a suicide note.
"There's no one who would've been less deserving of this kind of thing than Karen was", Henry Alexander said Tuesday.
Jessica Alexander, Smith's relative, remembers the late 53-year-old as "an awesome, awesome lady, a lovely mom and a handsome teacher". Clutching a teddy bear, Brianna said that she loved her teacher. I want to thank the first responders, teachers and school administrators who were there to protect the students in harm's way.
