14 Dead, 14 Injured in San Bernardino Shooting, Suspects Sought

Fourteen people have died and another fourteen have been injured in what police are calling an active shooter situation in San Bernardino, California. SWAT teams are pursuing as many as three suspects.

San Bernardino police chief Jarrod Burguan said in a press conference that the suspects “came prepared to do what they did as if they were on a mission” and that most of the victims were in a “centralized location.” The shooting only lasted three or four minutes. Burguan also mentioned that there would be a press conference “every hour on the hour.”

The call came in around 11 a.m. PT in the 1300 block of South Waterman Avenue, at the Inland Regional Center, according to San Bernardino police Lt. Rich Lawhead. The San Bernardino Sheriff’s Office closed off local streets and emergency responders were making their way into a cluster of buildings on the scene. Police don’t know anythin about the suspects — race, age, etc.

Witnesses report seeing gunman in masks and body armor entering the building where the shooting took place.

Up to 30 hostages were seen coming out of the building affected, a center for treating developmentally disabled people.

The suspects were said to have sped away in an SUV.

A makeshift triage center was set up outside the building and a local NBC reporter said there were not enough ambulances to transport victims.

The Los Angeles Times reports and that police are searching for a black SUV. A Youkon, specifically.

One woman working inside the building texted her father and asked him to “pray for us.”
