SAN BERNARDINO, California– There are at least 14 people dead and 17 injured following a shooting at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California.
The president and CEO of the Southern California social services center where gunfire erupted says the focus is on a building that houses at least 25 employees as well as a library and conference center.
Marybeth Feild of the Inland Regional Center says “the incident is in the conference area” that an outside group was renting Wednesday. She says she is not at the center, which serves people with developmental disabilities, and does not know what outside group rented the center.
Feild says people served by the center also would have been in the building, which is in San Bernardino, about 60 miles east of Los Angeles.
San Bernardino County announced on its Twitter account that six people were being treated at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, which is run by the county.
A spokeswoman for Loma Linda University Medical Center says four patients were taken to its trauma center.
Fire Chief Tom Hannemann says firefighters were on the scene within seven minutes of the 11 a.m. Wednesday call and transported all the injured by 11:30 a.m. (PT)
As of 7 p.m. (ET), police say one suspect in the deadly shooting has been shot in a gunbattle with officers.
San Bernardino police Sgt. Vicki Cervantes said Wednesday that there is still possibly a suspect “outstanding.”
