Update as of 7:40pm: Syed Farook has been named as a possible suspect in the San Bernardino, California shooting. He is listed as a resident at the address that the black SUV used as a getaway vehicle was traced to. Police also believe that Farook’s brother may have been involved in the shooting as well.

Two suspects have already been killed, one man and one woman. Both were wearing “assault-style clothing” and carrying assault-style weapons as well as handguns. A police officer was shot in the confrontation, but it was non-life threatening and he is expected to be okay.

The incident is now being regarded as “possibly terrorism.”

Update as of 4:55pm: In addition to the 14 dead, 17 people have now been confirmed to be injured. People are still being extracted from the location.

Multiple deaths have been confirmed after a California shooting broke out at Inland Regional Center, a San Bernardino care center for people with developmental disabilities.

The number of deaths have not yet been confirmed, but at least 14 people are believed to have been killed with an estimated 14 more wounded.

Authorities are now on the lookout for up to three shooters believed to be involved in the incident, armed with AK-47-type weapons. Witnesses have reported seeing three men with guns who got into a black SUV and fled the scene after the shootings occurred.

Victims of the California shooting are currently being transported to hospitals for emergency care. The hospital spokeswoman for Loma Linda University Medical Center, Briana Pastorino, has said they have received four patients so far and are expecting at least three more to arrive.

Arrowhead Regional Medical Center has received eight patients so far as well, while Patton State Hospital officials said their facility is “in crisis” mode but have not given a number for how many patients they are expecting.

San Bernardino Unified School District officials have reported that more than 70 schools are currently in lockdown mode as a safety precaution.

Marcos Aguilera, whose wife works in the building where this California shooting occurred, spoke for his wife saying, “They locked themselves in her office. They seen bodies on the floor.”

In addition to the shootings, while a S.W.A.T. team was clearing the building, they found what they determined to be a suspicious package on the second floor of Inland Regional Center. Having determined that it was “not normal,” the bomb squad has used a robot to detonate the package.

Police who are at the scene are now working to assemble a battering ram in order to gain access to the building, believing that one suspect may still be inside. Authorities who are not at the scene are trying to track down the black SUV getaway vehicle that was spotted fleeing the scene.
