Vigils planned Tuesday evening for San Bernardino school shooting

A candlelight vigil has been planned for victims in the North Park Elementary School shooting.

The vigil is scheduled at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the North Park playground, 5378 North H St. in San Bernardino, according to community members.

An 8-year-old child and a teacher are dead, and another child was wounded, in an apparent murder-suicide Monday at North Park.

A second vigil is set at 7 p.m. at Kingdom Culture Worship Centre, at 2050 Pacific St. in San Bernardino. The event is open to the public.

Lead pastors Sherman and Jaquet Dumas, of Kingdom Culture Worship Centre, will host a prayer vigil to grieve for all the victims of the shooting. The event will include a prayer service, meditation and music.

“We decided to do this prayer vigil because we want to unite our city as tragedy has struck once again,” Sherman Dumas said, in a statement. “We’ve rose from the ashes before and we know our community can and will do it once more. We’re believing that as our community draws together we’re going to feed on the energy and love of one another and build another moment of hope.”

• A memorial at the school has been growing. Two vigils were held Monday night.

The school is closed through the week, according to school district officials.

On Monday, Cedric Anderson, 53, of Riverside, arrived at the San Bernardino school shortly before 10:30 a.m. He checked-in and then went to his wife’s classroom. Karen Elaine Smith, 53, where he opened fire. The pair had been married since Jan. 28, but had already been separated for several weeks.

Police do not believe Anderson intentionally targeted the children. And, San Bernardino City Unified School District Superintendent Dale Marsden said, all district policies were complied with when Anderson was let onto campus.
