Two others, possibly students, have been shot and taken to a local hospital, Chief Jarrod Burguan said.
Police responded to a shooting they're calling a murder suicide at an elementary school in San Bernardino on Monday. Maria Garcia says the shooting is believed to be a domestic dispute. Burguan said it's possible those two were students. "The schools are very safe and it is extremely hard for a stranger to get on campus", Penman said.
"Two adults are deceased in a classroom, believed to be a murder suicide", Burguan added. Television news footage showed students, escorted by police officers, walking off campus hand-in-hand.
The school is now on lockdown, and other area schools have been placed on precautionary lockdown, Garcia said.
The shooter rampaged through North Park Elementary in San Bernardino, California.
"It's going to be all right", said grandmother Regina Hamilton, hugging a stranger outside Cajon High.
San Bernardino County fire and police are on scene at North Park Elementary School where multiple gunshot wounds were reported, according to a tweets from both departments. The duo killed 14 people and injured two dozen others.
Another man said his daughter left her phone at home, leaving him unable to reach her for updates.
School officials said North Park Elementary would remain closed for at least two days.
San Bernardino Mayor Carey Davis said he received a call from the White House expressing concern for the students and teachers at the school.
The shooter said he was going to the classroom to visit the teacher.
On 2 December 2015, fourteen people were killed and 22 more injured at a holiday party at San Bernardino's Inland Regional Center.
