As coverage of the chase for a possible suspect, one of three, the other two were shot one was killed, the other’s condition is unknown, in the Southern California social service facility shooting continues, police continue to investigate the motives behind the shooting.
Police are serving a search warrant on a home in Redlands, California, in connection with the deadly shooting at a social services facility in neighboring San Bernardino.
One witness says he saw people carrying one injured woman out of the vehicle, as well as a pair of empty boots on a sidewalk followed by a trail of blood.
City spokesman Carl Baker says Redlands police are assisting San Bernardino police in the search connected to the Wednesday morning shooting that killed at least 14 people and wounded more than a dozen others.
An Associated Press reporter watched as a half-dozen vehicles carrying helmeted police drove into the area. One officer carrying an assault rifle ordered reporters to clear the area, and an armored vehicle parked outside a row of homes.
The action followed a gunbattle between occupants of an SUV and San Bernardino police not far from the original shooting scene.
The San Bernardino County Department of Public Health has confirmed that several of its employees were inside a social services facility when gunmen opened fire.
The department says on a verified county Twitter account that it’s not releasing any more information because of the ongoing investigation and out of respect for the victims.
The health department says it will be providing services to its employees and their families.
Center President and CEO Marybeth Feild said earlier Wednesday that the department was renting out a conference area at the center for a banquet when the attack took place.
Gov. Jerry Brown says the shooting at a social services facility in Southern California is a brutal attack.
He said in a statement that “California will spare no effort in bringing these killers to justice.” The governor was scheduled to light the Capitol Christmas tree Wednesday evening, but his office said the ceremony will be canceled.
