    (Published Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017)

    A Vallejo school community was shaken Friday after a confrontation between the family members of two children turned deadly.

    Counselors spent the day on the Loma Vista Elementary School campus after a situation between two first-graders reportedly led to a confrontation between the kids' fathers and ended with a 51-year-old man being shot dead.

    Police said officers responded to a report of a shooting in the 100 block of Kemper Street around 10:15 a.m. Thursday.

    There, officers found a man suffering from a gunshot wound. Medical personnel attempted to treat the victim, however, he was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

    The victim's identity is being withheld until his family has been notified. The school district is also staying mum, however, parents say they are troubled and talking to their children about how to keep emotions from getting out of hand. 

    Police also did not release information about suspects.

    Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Vallejo police Detective Josh Caitham at 707-648-4342 or Detective Mat Mustard at 707-648-4514.
