After a shooting on March 10, 2017, at North Park Elementary School in San Bernardino, students returned to school on Monday, March 17, according to pe.com.

“North Park Elementary students returned to school, a week after Cedric Anderson, 53, of Riverside, entered the campus with a gun, killing his estranged wife Karen Elaine Smith, 53, student Jonathan Martinez, 8, and wounding student Nolan Brandy, 9, before turning the gun on himself and killing himself,” according to dailybulletin.com.

About 150 officers from the San Bernardino Police Department came to North Park Elementary after the shooting. Also, there were six parents, including Melissa Meza and husband Alfredo Meza, outside the perimeter of the school to make sure that the kids were ok, according to desertsun.com.

Cedric Anderson and Karen Elaine Smith were married for a couple of months and then separated for a month. “Cedric Anderson has a criminal history, including domestic violence, weapons, and possible drug charges, according to the chief. It’s not clear what charges, if any, Anderson has been convicted of,” stated  ktla.com.

“I miss my teacher. Her name is Mrs. Dawson,” said 8-year-old Thomas Cabrera, whose classroom was next to Classroom B1 where the fatal shooting took place. “I want to give her a hug,” according to pe.com.

“The kids were excited to be back. Me, though, I’m a little nervous, but I know the teachers are there for them,” later added  Melissa Meza, whose kids go to North Park Elementary at the ages of 10 and 7. She was a little nervous because the incident had killed a teacher and a student in a classroom, according to sbsun.com.
