Fourteen people were killed and 17 were wounded after up to three shooters opened fire with long guns inside the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino Wednesday, according to city police. They were on a “mission” barged into a holiday party in a conference room and unleashed a bloodbath, law enforcement sources told NBC, CBS, CNN and FOX News.
The gunman or gunmen fled in a black SUV after the shooting about at 11 a.m. (2 p.m. ET), police said.
About 4½ hours later, multiple police cars were involved in a high-speed chase nearby with three people in a dark truck or SUV, law enforcement sources told NBC News. Two of the suspects were shot, the sources said — one was killed and the other was wounded in the chest.
At least one of the suspects was in custody Wednesday afternoon, the sources said.
The hunt for one to three suspects is taking place near a San Bernardino, California, center for people with developmental disabilities, where at least 14 people were killed Wednesday, Police Chief Jarrod Burguan told reporters.
