"They were just her babies", Fields said.

The couple divorced in 1997.

"He thinks he's going to see his teacher and his friend when he comes back to school", Sloan said.

Mary Fields, a fellow teacher, said Smith loved kids.

The suspected gunman in a murder-suicide at a San Bernardino elementary school reportedly had a brief and rocky relationship with his wife before he fatally shot her, one of her students and then himself on Monday (10 April), police said.

Mondays shootings at the North Park Elementary School has brought people together for healing just as the city was recovering from the mass killings at the Inland Regional Center 16 months earlier.

Burguan said at the time of the shooting, Smith and two adult aides were in the classroom, along with 15 special needs students ranging from first to fourth grades. Jonathan had survived a previous heart surgery.

"Unlike disorders that can make connecting with your child hard, children with Williams syndrome tend to be social, friendly and endearing", Marsden said.

"By all accounts, Jonathan Martinez was a happy child", Marsden said at a news conference. Smith's estranged husband, Cedric Anderson, shot and killed her in her classroom at North Park Elementary School school before turning the gun on himself.

On Tuesday, the school district's superintendent said his family wanted to raise awareness of Williams syndrome, a genetic condition that Jonathan was born with, in memory of the boy.

A candlelight vigil is planned for the victims Tuesday evening at North Park Elementary.

In a short video posted on February 27, the 53-year-old talks about why he loves her. He said police hadn't confirmed those details. Smith moved out of their home and had been staying with family.

Anderson had been arrested four times since 1982, though none resulted in convictions, Burguan said.

Anderson, a self-proclaimed pastor whose Facebook profile is filled with Bible quotes and religious references, had been unemployed but previously held jobs as a maintenance worker, police said.

"Those closest to her said that she had mentioned that his behavior was odd, and that she was concerned about his behavior and that he had made some threats toward her", the police chief said.

Police say the couple married in January and separated in the middle of March. The school will remain closed until Monday, Marsden said.

An elderly woman hands flowers to a police officer to honor the shooting victims at North Park Elementary School Monday, April 10, 2017, in San Bernardino, Calif.

Anderson, 53, walked into the special-education classroom and fired 10 shots with a.357 Magnum, targeting his wife but also hitting two of her students.
