UPDATE 9:15 P.M.: The Los Angeles Times is reporting that two people connected to the mass shooting at the San Bernardino social services building are dead.

According to the LA Times, a man and a woman “were killed in a firefight with police officers after a car chase Wednesday.”

Local law enforcement also reports that “at least one device that police believed to be an explosive was recovered at the center, where authorities were expected to remain for several hours,” states the story.

UPDATE 6 P.M.: According to KABC-TV, “up to 14 people were killed and up to 14 others were wounded” in the active-shooter situation in San Bernardino.

The KABC-TV story says that the gunmen were armed with rifles and wearing body armor, according to police. The report also states that San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said “the number of people killed and wounded were preliminary estimates that could change.”

ORIGINAL STORY: Media sources and law-enforcement officials say that there is an “active-shooter situation” at a social services center in San Bernardino, Calif., on Wednesday.

According to KABC-TV, police are reporting between one and three shooters carrying long rifles and wearing ski masks. The station’s report states that investigators have searched the Inland Regional Center, “a nonprofit that works with individuals with developmental disabilities,” but have not yet cleared the area. The center’s Facebook page says that it employs 670 people in its San Bernardino and Riverside county facilities, and serves more than 30,000.

CNN is reporting that the San Bernardino fire department is considering this situation a “20 victim shooting incident,” though it is unclear how many people were fatally wounded.
