San Bernardino school shooter threatened his wife: Police

San Bernardino school shooter threatened his wife: Police
The man who opened fire in a San Bernardino school was a pastor and Navy veteran who accused his newlywed wife of infidelity. When he failed in his efforts to win her back, he went to her classroom and fatally shot her and one of the special needs children she taught, police said on Tuesday. In the weeks before Monday's violence Karen Smith told family members her new husband, Cedric Anderson, had tried to get her to return home and threatened her, San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said. She didn't take him seriously and thought he was just seeking attention, he said. Police do not know what triggered the attack or why Anderson chose to attack Smith at the school, Burguan said, adding she never shared any information about her marital problems with colleagues. "She effectively kept her private life private," Burguan said. On Monday morning, hundreds of panicked parents descended on the North Park School in San Bernardino, waiting for hours for information on their children.
