At least 14 killed

Another one. Is it going to be every other day now? Every day? Several per day?

The New York Times is live updating.

Police Report Multiple Fatalities, Possibly as Many as 12
Coral Castro, the multimedia coordinator for the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department, said that details about the shooting were still in flux, including the number of suspects and casualties.

But she reported that there were “possibly 12 fatalities.”

Ms. Castro said the department was assisting in the investigation and she emphasized that information was still coming in. The police are searching for three possible suspects, she said, but no one is in custody.

She said a news conference would be held at 1:45 p.m. local time at the corner of Waterman and Vanderbilt in San Bernardino.

Seven minutes later –

At a news conference, local and federal law enforcement officials reported that at least 14 people were killed in the San Bernardino shooting, and that another 14 were injured.

“We do not know if this is a terrorist incident, said David Bowdich, Assistant Director of the FBI’s Los Angeles office.

Officials said that the shooters dressed in equipment “suggesting they were prepared.” But Chief Jarrod Burguan of the San Bernardino Police Department said the motive was still unknown, and he said “we have no information at this point to indicate this is terrorist related in the sense that people may have been thinking.”

The US is a shameful country in many ways. This is one of them.
