At a press conference just before 5 PM EST, San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan announced there are at least 14 people dead and sevteen people wounded as a result of the mass shooting, clarifying that while that number is "reliable," it is also subject to change.
According to Burguan the "suspects fled the scene" and there is "no word on the motivation of this shooting at this point."
At least one active shooter in San Bernardino, California on Wednesday has reportedly left multiple victims including some fatalities, but little is known about the extent of the injuries, the motive behind the attack, or the number of assailants.
The San Bernardino Fire Department said on Twitter that its units are responding to "reports of 20 victim shooting incident" and currently working to "clear the scene."
According toNPR, the incident is "unfolding at the Inland Regional Center, which is part of the California Department of Developmental Services and serves people with developmental disabilities."
"For the past 44 years, Inland Regional Center's qualified and supportive employees strive daily to serve more than 31,000 individuals with developmental disabilities in San Bernardino and Riverside counties," the facility's website states. "As the largest of the regional centers in the State of California, Inland Regional Center is a nonprofit, private community-based agency that is proud to help obtain services and support for our constituents."
