A shooting at a San Bernardino, California elementary school left two people dead on Monday, according to police.

San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan tweeted that two adults were dead in what police believe to be “a murder suicide.”

“We believe the suspect is down and there’s no further threat,” Burguan posted.

He said that two “possible students” were being treated at local hospitals.

Police said that there were four victims, according to a report by KNBC. Fire officials said that two students and a teacher were hit.

San Bernardino police Lt. Vicki Cervantes told the Los Angeles Times that two students were airlifted to local hospital. Their conditions are unknown.

The San Bernardino City Unified School District posted on Facebook that the threat had “been neutralized” but that three schools, including North Park, remained on lockdown.

According to KNBC, school district official Maria Garcia said that the shooting appeared to be the result of a domestic violence dispute involving the teacher who was injured.
