The San Bernardino shooting shocked the nation – an angry, abusive, husband, was just allowed to walk into the school where his wife was a teacher, and opened fire. He killed his wife, and an 8-year-old student of hers, before killing himself.
Now, chilling new footage showed Cedric Anderson strolling into the office in the school, without any security check, wrote his name on a sign in sheet, and progressed ahead without being asked any questions.
There is no video of the attack though.
The couple was currently estranged, after being married just last year. Anderson was reportedly angry and abusive, causing his wife, Karen Smith, to separate from him.
The Daily Mail reports:
The video does not show the attack.
Just minutes later, Anderson walked into his estranged wife’s special-needs classroom, whipped out a handgun and opened fire without saying a word, police said.
Anderson went to the school after failing to persuade his wife to take him back after they broke up just weeks into their marriage, investigators said.
The couple married in late January, but Smith left her husband around March after discovering the man she married ‘wasn’t wonderful’.
Anderson killed his wife, Karen Smith, and an eight-year-old student, Jonathan Martinez, before fatally shooting himself.
A nine-year-old student, Nolan Brandy, was wounded in the shooting and later released from the hospital.
School officials have said security at North Park has been tightened since the shooting.
Late last month, family and friends held a funeral for Smith, which was attended by the superintendent for the San Bernardino school district.
Some of Smith’s four children, including her daughter, Jennifer, spoke at the service, while one of her sons played a song on his guitar as a tribute.
One of Smith’s brothers continued the musical theme, performing a song on the saxophone to honor his sister.
Irma Sykes, Smith’s mother, spoke at the service about her daughter’s strong religious beliefs.
‘I know that Karen is in the presence of the Lord,’ Sykes said, KACB reports.
‘I know that Karen’s work is finished. If it wasn’t finished, God would not have taken her home.’
