North Park Elementary School students and parents are reunited after a shooting at their school on April 10, 2017, in San Bernardino.
An 8-year-old boy shot and killed along with his teacher in a San Bernardino special-education classroom was born with a genetic condition and had survived heart surgery, a school official said.

Smith's mother, Irma Sykes, said her daughter had been friends with Anderson for about four years before they got married.
The couple had married in January and separated in mid-March, with Smith leaving to stay with her adult children, Burguan said.
She said she knew her daughter was safe because she had heard from others that authorities had already contacted parents of the wounded children.
"Far too often in our country and throughout the world, we gather to report this news of tragic events that take place", San Bernardino Mayor R. Carey Davis said.
Anderson was a "known person" by school staff, and all the precautionary procedures were taken to confirm his identity when he arrived at the school, San Bernardino Unified School District Superintendent Dale Marsden said. On Friday, a St. Paul, Minnesota man allegedly killed his ex-girlfriend, who he reportedly abused, as well as her sister and father; he also allegedly shot and injured her mother. The document, however, did not contain information that would indicate it was a suicide note, according to Burguan.
She was at work again Monday when she learned of the shooting at North Park Elementary School, where her son Christian is in fourth grade.

The two students who were struck by gunfire were standing behind Smith, the police chief said.
Smith's family told police she had mentioned his behavior was odd, she was concerned about his behavior and that he had made threats toward her, but not "a specific threat to shoot her", Burguan noted.
It was an uneventful Monday at North Park Elementary School in San Bernadino, California. He then turned the gun on himself.
Chief Burguan said at Tuesday's news conference that nobody at the school's front desk "was aware of marital discord", and that an employee in the school office recognized Anderson, 53. Jonathan's family shared photos of the boy on Tuesday.
After what the woman documents as Anderson "lecturing" her, she said she stood up to go outside for a cigarette.
Students dove under desks when a man walked into his estranged wife's elementary school classroom and opened fire without saying a word, killing her and an 8-year-old student and wounding a 9-year-old before fatally shooting himself, authorities said. The school will remain closed until Monday, April 17, Marsden said. Just showing the love, letting them know we are here for them.
"Children were just a part of her life".
Burguan said Anderson had been arrested four times, from 1982 to 2013, on charges including weapons, domestic violence and theft - but none of those cases resulted in convictions.
