At least two people were killed and another two were wounded possibly students when they were shot on their classroom on Monday at California elementary school.

A San Bernardino school spokeswoman says one of the victims was a teacher.

"We believe this to be a murder suicide", Police Chief Jarrod Burguan tweeted. "However, we do believe the threat is down", Burguan tweeted.

One of the deceased adults is a teacher, and the two student's condition was not immediately disclosed.

Anderson, 53, then turned the gun on himself and killed himself. The boy has been identified as 8-year-old Jonathan Martinez.

The other students in the school were being evacuated and taken to a nearby school. The teacher, Karen Smith, had been standing in front of the students, who were special-needs students, when she was shot.

They said Anderson had a criminal history that included domestic violence and weapons charges. The wounded have been taken to local hospitals and their conditions are unknown.

According to Maass, the shooter signed in at North Park's front desk before going to the classroom, where he opened fire. Police Chief Jarrod Burguan, who won national praise for the way his department responded to the 2015 shootings, announced previous year he was hiring additional officers. "I would like you to work with your young child to keep things as normal as possible", Marsden said.

The 600 other students at the school were bused to safety at California State University's San Bernardino campus, several kilometres away.

Police chief Jarrod Burguan described the incident as a suspected "murder-suicide" attempt.

The San Bernardino County Fire confirmed that there were multiple victims at 10:45 a.m., but they did not provide a count.

San Bernardino was as the scene of a shooting rampage on December 2, 2015, when married couple went on a shooting rampage killing 14 people and injured 21 more.
