2 injured after man opens fire at SoCal school
CARLSBAD, Calif. — Police say two students were injured when a man opened fire at a San Diego-area elementary school.
He was quickly tackled by bystanders, and the children suffered only minor injuries to their arms.
Carlsbad police spokeswoman Fiona Everett couldn’t immediately say if the injuries were gunshot wounds, but added they were not life-threatening.
A witness says he looked out his window to see a man park a van, jump over a fence at Kelly Elementary School, walk across a field and open fire with a .357 Magnum revolver at a crowd of children.
Terry Lynn told KNSD-TV the man was ranting about the president when he was tackled by construction workers.
The shooting occurred around noon Friday.
