December 2, 2015 11:19 AM

SAN BERNARDINO (CBSLA.com) — Police are searching San Bernardino social services building Wednesday for up to three suspects after reports of as many as 20 people shot.

San Bernardino Fire officials are reporting at least 20 victims in a shooting that was first reported at about 10:59 a.m. at the Inland Regional Center, 1365 South Waterman Avenue.

The shooting erupted in a conference room being rented by an outside group, according to Mary Beth Fields of the Inland Regional Center. She said she was not aware of which outside group.:rolleyes:

Authorities initially reported 20 victims, but San Bernardino police spokesman Lt. Rich Lawhead said he spoke to colleagues at the scene who said there could be more.

They “said there were multiple victims, upwards of 20,” Lawhead said. “Again, what, how many and the extent of the injury, I really don’t know, and I know we’re still in the process of clearing that scene, and there may be more located.”

“What I was told was there are multiple casualties and that there are some confirmed fatalities,” San Bernardino police Sgt. Vicki Cervantes said. “I don’t have numbers at this point.”

More Than 14 Dead, 14 Hurt in SoCal Mass Shooting
By Willian Avila
Published 4 hours ago

More than 14 people were killed and 14 others were wounded Wednesday in an "active shooter" situation involving up to three suspects at a social services facility east of Los Angeles.

About 11 a.m., up to three people entered a center that serves people with developmental disabilities in the 1300 block of S. Waterman Avenue in San Bernardino and opened fire on the people inside, according to the San Bernardino Police Department.

"They were dressed and equipped in a way that indicated that they were prepared," San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said. "We have no information at this point that this is terrorist related in the traditional way people may be thinking. Obviously, at a minimum, we have a domestic terrorist situation that occurred here."

Authorities were searching for those involved. Multiple agencies, including the FBI and ATF, were assisting with the investigation.

Images from the scene showed law enforcement personnel armed with rifles and wearing protective gear fanning out across the area, as emergency responders treated multiple victims in the street.

"They were being carried on trucks… They were shot, they were injured. Some of them did not survive," said NBC Los Angeles reporter Tony Shin, describing victims he saw being brought to the triage area.

The shooting broke out at the Inland Regional Center, which serves more than 31,000 people with developmental disabilities in San Bernardino County and neighboring Riverside County, according to the center's website. According to the site, the facility is the largest of California's regional centers, and is "a nonprofit, private community-based agency that is proud to help obtain services and support for our constituents."

Law enforcement officers were going through the "tedious" process of clearing the three-story building, where multiple people were still inside, San Bernardino Police Lt. Richard Lawhead said.

One man at the scene said his daughter, who works at the center with the mentally disabled, had texted him. She was hiding in a closet with other people, he said. The man was still awaiting a text to ensure that she is OK.

Another man told NBC Los Angeles his sister has cerebral palsy and attends the center.

NBC Los Angeles photographer Alex Vasquez made his way to the Inland Regional Center soon after the shooting and said he saw many people with severe injuries, and that he spoke to some who were in shock.

"They heard many gunshots. A lot of people were just yelling for their loved ones," he said.

Loma Linda University Medical Center said it had received four adult patients and was expecting three more.

Family members were asked to go to the Hernandez Center at 222 N. Lugo Ave., near the corner of Sierra Way and East Third Street, for information on their loved ones.

The area near Waterman Avenue and Park Center Circle was closed to traffic. Drivers were advised to avoid the area.

President Barack Obama was briefed by an adviser about the shooting, and asked to stay updated as it develops, according to a pool report from the White House.

December 2, 2015 5:49 PM

SAN BERNARDINO (CBSLA.com) — Fourteen people were confirmed killed and 17 more wounded in a mass shooting at a San Bernardino community social services building.

“We do have some preliminary numbers of upwards of 14 people that are dead and upwards of 14 people that are injured,” said Chief Jarrod Burguan of San Bernardino Police. The number of injured was later upped to 17.

The shooting was first reported at about 10:59 a.m. at the Inland Regional Center, 1365 South Waterman Avenue. The gunfire erupted in a conference room where the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health was holding a banquet, said Maybeth Field, president and CEO of the social services center. She said the building houses at least 25 employees as well as a library and conference center.

At a 5:35 p.m. news conference, officials said two suspects — one male and one female — were dead and another suspect was in custody.

San Bernardino police Sgt. Vicki Cervantes said that there were multiple shooters wearing military-style gear.

While no motive for the shooting was immediately known, FBI Asst. Director David Bowdich told reporters, “I will tell you right now, we do not know if this is a terrorist incident.”

3. An FBI Source Says the Shooting Was Sparked by an Argument at a Holiday Party

The Los Angeles Times quotes a federal government source saying that the fight was sparked by an argument at a holiday party. The Times says one of the gunmen left the party and returned with other shooters.

Fox Los Angeles reports that one of the suspects walked into a conference room and began opening fire. According to the Inland Regional Center’s website, which has gone down, the center was hosting a “holiday boutique” on Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The shooting was first reported at about 11 a.m. One employee, Mark Stutte, told KTLA’s Tara Wallis that the gunfire broke out at the party. An employee of the building, Brandon Hunt, told CNN that none of the victims were IRC employees, the target appears to have been a banquet that was being attended by county personnel. One employee told her husband that as she left the facility, she had to climb over bodies.

Syed Farook: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know
Published 9:23 pm EST, December 2, 2015 Updated 9:03 am EST, December 3, 2015


Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, has been identified as one of the suspected gunmen in the Wednesday morning shooting at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California, police said. He was killed in a shootout with police several hours after the shooting.

A woman, Tashfeen Malik, 27, was also killed. It’s not yet known if there was a third suspect.

At least 14 people were killed and 17 others were wounded. The shooting occurred at about 11 a.m., and the suspects were shot at about 3 p.m. after a police chase that began at a home in Redlands, California, and ended with a shootout in San Bernardino.

Witnesses said there were three shooters, but police said they now believe there were only two gunmen.

Police said it’s unclear if Farook and Malik were married, or were engaged. Farook’s brother-in-law said at a press conference that Farook’s wife is also missing. They have a young child together, according to the New York Times. The child was left with Farook’s mother, the Times reports.

Farook is citizen of the United States and his parents are from Pakistan. Police said they do not have any information about where Malik is from.

Muslim newlyweds slaughter co-workers who threw them a baby shower

Authorities were investigating terror links after a government worker and his wife shot up his San Bernardino, Calif., office party Wednesday, killing 14 people.

Syed Farook, 28, a devout Muslim, stormed out of the festivities and later returned with his new wife, Tashfeen Malik, 27. Both wore dark tactical gear and masks while toting assault rifles and handguns, police said.

The murderous duo sprayed bullets inside a conference room, slaughtering colleagues who earlier this year had thrown a shower for their new baby.

In addition to the dead, 17 were seriously wounded.

No motive was immediately determined, but the Joint Terrorism Task Force was investigating and the city’s police chief declared early Thursday, “We have not ruled out terrorism.”

“This was not a casual workplace argument,” one law enforcement source told The Post. “It’s a well-planned and thought-out attack.”

The killers sped away in a black SUV from the Inland Regional Center, a state-run facility for developmental-disability services.

Hours later, cops went to Farook’s home in nearby Redlands, where the couple fled in the SUV. Officers eventually cornered the Yukon Denali on a quiet San Bernardino street and riddled it with bullets during a shootout that left Farook and Malik dead as blood pooled in the road.

Jesus Gonzales, 36, said his house was hit during the gun battle while his wife was inside.

His wife “called me frantically saying she’s hearing gunshots going off. Everywhere. And that she’s scared. And that she heard noises in the house, like it’s hitting the house,” he told the San Bernardino Sun. “She ducked down and said she heard more than 100 rounds.”

Authorities said the killers had thought through the massacre before heading to the facility at about 11 a.m. local time.

“Preliminary information indicates that these were people that came prepared, that they were dressed and equipped in a way to indicate that they were prepared,” San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said.

“And they were armed with long guns, not handguns.”

He later added, “They came in with a purpose — they came in with an intent.”

Burguan said he could not rule out that a personal conflict led to the shooting, the LA Times reported.

“There was some type of dispute” at the banquet before Farook left the event angrily, Burguan said. He later returned with Malik and they opened fire.

Law enforcement authorities said they recovered four firearms, at least two of which had been legally purchased, the paper reported.

Farook, born in the United States, met Malik while on a recent trip to her native Saudi Arabia, the LA Times said. He had met her online, the paper reported.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said Farook left his 6-month-old child with his mother Wednesday morning, claiming he had a doctor’s appointment.

Farook’s brother-in-law, Farhan Khan, said at a press conference with the Orange County chapter of CAIR: “I have no idea why would he do that. Why would he do something like this? I have absolutely no idea.”

Farook made $51,000 a year as an environmental health specialist for the county.

A co-worker at the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health said Farook was a reserved man who had just returned from paternity leave.

“He was very quiet,” Griselda Reisinger told the LA Times. “I would say hi and bye, but we never engaged him in conversation. He didn’t say much at all.”

Reisinger, who left the agency in May, said there were a lot of workers unhappy with management in the department.

But Farook “never struck me as a fanatic, he never struck me as suspicious,” she said.

Patrick Baccari, who shared a cubicle with Farook, said his colleague appeared to be “living the American dream” with his new wife and baby.

Baccari and another worker said Farook rarely started a conversation but was well-liked.

Baccari said that when Farook disappeared just before the photo session at the party, someone asked, “Where’s Syed?”

The slaughter took place inside the largest conference room at the facility, where the party was being held.

The shooters specifically targeted a group from the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health, according to Inland board president and chief executive Marybeth Feild.

Terrified social workers locked their office doors, hid in bathrooms and ducked under desks as gunshots rang out.

Several people texted loved ones as they sought cover.

“People shot. In the office waiting for cops. Pray for us,” Terry Petit’s daughter texted him. Her fate was unclear.

Cops who arrived on the scene never exchanged shots with the attackers, who might have fled by then.

A rifle with a black nylon case was found on South Waterman Avenue, not far from the center.

Meanwhile, the sidewalks and streets outside the building were a bloody, chaotic mess, with wounded victims being treated on the ground as others were hurried into ambulances.

Dozens of people left the building in single-file lines with their hands up, to ensure the killers hadn’t embedded themselves among them.

Most of the evacuated employees were taken to the Rock Church & World Outreach Center in San Bernardino.

Some of the wounded were being placed in the backs of pickup trucks to be taken to hospitals.

Arrowhead Regional Medical Center reported taking in six patients, while Loma Linda University Medical Center said it was treating another six.

Hordes of law enforcement officers descended on the facility in the aftermath, spending hours sweeping for explosives.

A bomb squad detonated one suspected explosive device using a robot, according to a federal law enforcement official.
