“Active Shooter” In San Bernardino CA”

3 Shooters At Large? 20+ victims, 12 dead?

As many as a dozen people have reportedly been killed in what police call an active shooter situation Wednesday in San Bernardino, Calif., where SWAT teams were pursuing three suspects who may have escaped in an SUV.

As many as 30 hostages were seen coming out of the building, a center for treating developmentally disabled people, where the event occurred. Local Fox affiliate KTTV reported that at least 12 fatalities occurred inside the building, which was surrounded by authorities, just before noon local time. The FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms were responding.

Police were using a robot to search the building for possible explosives, even as they sought the gunmen. It was not clear if any or all of the suspects had escaped, but police were seeking a black SUV. Sources told Fox authorities know the identity of at least one of the gunmen.

Witnesses described passing bodies on the ground as they fled, but it was not clear if, or how many, people were killed.

The initial call came in around 11 a.m. in the 1300 block of South Waterman Avenue, at the Inland Regional Center, according to San Bernardino police Lt. Rich Lawhead. A makeshift triage center was set up outside the facility. A local NBC videographer reported there were not enough ambulances to transport victims, and that people were using pickup trucks to carry victims to triage areas.

The San Bernardino Sheriff’s Office closed off local streets and emergency responders were making their way into a cluster of buildings on the scene.

A witness told Fox News that gunmen wearing masks and body armor entered the building and started shooting. Another area resident said a woman trapped inside called her father and asked him to “pray for us.”

Authorities in San Bernardino, California, responded Wednesday to reports of an active shooter or more than one shooter.

There were reports from the sheriff’s department that there were one to three suspects. The fire department said it was responding to a “20 victim shooting incident.”

[Latest developments, posted at 3:24 p.m. ET]

• There are multiple buildings in the complex, CNN affiliate KTLA reported. SWAT teams are moving methodically through to clear them.

• The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were responding, agency representatives said.

• Loma Linda University Medical Center is expecting an unknown number of patients from the shooting, spokeswoman Briana Pastorino said. She said the extent of the anticipated patients’ injuries is not clear.

• A woman who works at a building where the shootings occurred texted her father: “Shooting at my work. People shot.” The father told CNN affiliate KABC his daughter told him 10 to 20 people were shot.

• Wednesday’s San Bernardino, California, shooting occurred at the Inland Regional Center, a facility for people with developmental disabilities. It is unclear how many people were at the facility at the time of the shooting.

A bomb may have been left behind, found, and then detonated by the bomb squad. Early reports said how the shooters rushed a conference room and opened fire. Initial escapees from the building reported bodies strewn about the floor.

Everything is very vague right now; give it time to come together. The shooters may have escaped in a black SUV. A Yukon with tinted windows; driver may have been wearing a mask. This story is only 90 minutes old at this point, and is still developing.

UPDATE 6:15pm EST: Black SUV stopped not far from original shooting site. Gunfire exchanged, SUV shot to bits. it’s not a Yukon, but may have Utah plates. One suspect down, maybe two, one officer down, one suspect running away. “Bearcat” being set up. 3rd and possible 4th suspect still in SUV? Wounded count now at 17, fatality count now 14.

A Bearcat is an MRAP-like vehicle, well armored and high riding. It’s like an armored car the banks use, but bigger and stronger. Some have roof turrets.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
