One suspect has been detained and another two dead after the alleged gunmen opened fire in a social services facility east of Los Angeles on Wednesday that killed at least 14 people and left another 17 wounded, authorities said.
"This is truly a tragedy in our country," FBI Los Angeles Director David Bowditch said. Bowditch did not rule out that the shooting could have been a terrorist attack, saying "it is a possibility but we don't know this yet."
In the afternoon, authorities swarmed a bullet-riddled SUV during the massive manhunt for the suspects. Two suspects were killed and a third possible suspect has been detained after a standoff with police, Jarron Burguan, the San Bernardino police chief said in a press conference later in the day.
The third suspect was detained after running away from officers. The other two suspects, a male and a female "dressed in assault style clothing" and armed with both handguns and assault rifles, Burguan said.
The bomb squad continues to search the Inland Regional Center slowly after they found a suspicious device they believe could be an explosive, the police chief said.
Gunfire erupted about 11 a.m. at the Inland Regional Center in the 1300 block of S. Waterman Avenue in San Bernardino (map), which serves people with developmental disabilities, according to the San Bernardino Police Department. Hundreds of people were inside at the time.
