Sandler, 30, taught at Ozar Hatorah, the Jewish school where the shooting took place, the Associated Press reports. Sandler had also been taught there as a child. His children Gabriel, 4, and Arieh, 5, were pupils of the nearby Gan Rachi school of Toulouse.

The shooter also killed Miriam Monsonego, the seven-year-old daughter of the principal of Ozar Hatorah, on Monday, as well as three French soldiers last week.

On Tuesday, the French government imposed a high-level anti-terrorism alert as police searched for the gunman, The Post’s Ed Cody reports.

New details are emerging about the gunman, including that he may have worn a camera around his neck during shooting, according to a witness statement to investigators.

Police are also searching for a motive, with theories that he may have been a political extremist or connected to an underground network.
