As many as three people opened fire at a center for people with developmental disabilities in San Bernardino, Calif., on Wednesday, killing at least 14 people and injuring 14 others in what the city’s police chief described as an act of domestic terrorism.
The active shooting scene erupted at the Inland Regional Center, which serves people with developmental disabilities in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
The person or people who opened fire fled the area, possibly in a dark SUV, and authorities have no word on their location, identities or motives, Jarrod Burguan, chief of the San Bernardino Police Department, said at a news conference.
Burguan cautioned that the number of people injured and killed is preliminary, adding that some of the people wounded in the shooting have serious injuries. He said that police have active leads in the investigation but did not go into specifics.
The shooting was the latest spasm of deadly gun violence in the country, and it occurred less than five days after a gunman in Colorado attacked a Planned Parenthood clinic, killing three people and injuring nine others.
