King Elementary in Richmond has been closed for in-person learning this week following the discovery on Friday of concerning graffiti spray-painted on an abandoned van parked across the street.

“School Shooting May 26” was spray-painted on the side of the van found near the campus at 4022 Florida Ave., Matthew Duffy, superintendent of the West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD), said in a notice to the school community.

When the graffiti was discovered, “King’s Principal Joey Sundberg immediately contacted the Richmond Police Department and members of the District’s administration team,” Duffy said. “We are working with the Richmond police, who are actively investigating the incident.”

King Elementary has been closed for in-person instruction for the rest of the week out of an abundance of caution, Duffy said. Students have returned to in-person learning.

“Principal Sundberg and her team worked to notify the King community over the previous days about the incident and the shift back to Distance Learning,” Duffy said.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Richmond Police Department at (510) 233-1214.
