That's how relatives are remembering 8-year-old Jonathan Martinez, a student who was shot and killed on Monday at an elementary school in San Bernardino, California.

San Bernardino, a city of 216,000 people about 60 miles east of Los Angeles, was the site of a December 2015 terror attack that killed 14 people and wounded 22 others at a meeting of San Bernardino County employees.

Martinez died at a hospital after being shot Monday in his classroom at North Park Elementary School in San Bernardino by the estranged husband of his teacher, Karen Smith, who also was killed.

Police offers stand guard at North Park Elementary School following a shooting on campus on Mon., April 10, 2017 in San Bernardino, Calif.

We're not supposed to have to worry about our kids coming home alive when we drop them off at school in the morning.

The shooting at North Park Elementary, the latest of dozens of US schools traumatized by armed intruders in recent years, reopened debate about what educators can do to safeguard students against mounting gun violence. The pro-gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety reported in 2014 that more than half of women murdered with guns in the USA are killed by domestic partners, and that from January 2009 through June 2014, almost three of five mass shootings (at least four people killed or wounded) involved an act of domestic violence - crimes that rarely resonate beyond the communities in which they occurred. School is supposed to be a safe place.

Anderson, 53, fired off 10 shots from a.357 Magnum.

San Bernardino police chief Jarrod Burguan told reporters Tuesday that while the note made reference the the relationship between Cedric Anderson and his wife Karen Smith, it was not a suicide note. Pakistani-born Malik who met her future US-born husband on a Muslim dating website and married him in Saudi Arabia had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group on Facebook and was instrumental in radicalizing him.

San Bernardino Unified City School District Superintendent Dale Marsden said that the family wants - in the boy's memory - the nation to be aware and conscious of what Williams syndrome is. Jonathan had survived a previous heart surgery. Jonathan's family shared photos of their son for the first time on April 11. That boy, whose name was not been released, was expected to recover.

A 9-year-old boy remained in critical condition.

One girl described Smith as a "nice" teacher who would "help people that needed help". Police later confirmed that one of the students, eight- year-old Jonathan Martinez, had died.

The closure comes a day after a man walked into his estranged wife's classroom and opened fire, killing her and an 8-year-old student. But talking about him was too just too much, and she broke down in tears. She said the long wait was "frustrating but also understandable".

"He told her he would throw her out the window", Skyes added.

"I'm sorry our students, parents and teachers have suffered these events", he said.

"She effectively kept her private life private", Burguan said.
