There is an active shooter situation on the 1300 block of Waterman Avenue, near Orange Show Road, in San Bernardino, CA. Police have evacuated the Inland Regional Center that services people with disabilities. There are apparently 3 shooters and up to 20 people have been shot. As there is a Planned Parenthood facility somewhere in the area, look for early speculation that this was the target.
NBC is reporting that police are looking for 3 white males dressed in military gear.
UPDATE: Possible Suspect in San Bernardino Shooting
The Jewish Press picked up the following from a police scanner:
“The name of a possible suspect mentioned on the police scanner (before that was made unavailable to the public) is Sayeed Farouk.”
At the same time, President Obama took to the airwaves to blame guns. Police are still looking for a motive. Of course they are. As Fox News has ruled out Planned Parenthood as a target, officials interviewed on ABC are suggesting that, because the conference room where the shooting allegedly took place was rented out to the county for a healthcare organization meeting, it might have been an anti-government (read “right wing”) domestic terrorism job.
Meanwhile, “The president has been briefed by his Homeland Security Advisor Lisa Monaco about the shooting in San Bernardino and has asked to be updated on the situation as it develops,” a White House official said.
