  • SUSPECT VEHICLE: Officers surround car after chase and gun battle with suspects in shooting.

Multiple media report an "active shooter" and as many as 20 people hit in San Bernardino, Calif.

Up to 20 were shot, the LA Times has reported, in a social services office that provides help to people with developmental disabilities. The newspaper and others have quoted people as saying there may be three shooters, but all the information is sketchy and fluid.

KABC TV said "up to 12" people were killed. But that number has since been revised downward.

Reports are growing that suspects left the scene in an SUV. A bomb squad detonated something left in the building. TV footage shows multiple wounded being treated at the scene and being loaded into ambulances.

UPDATE: San Bernardino police are now saying "upwards of 14" are dead and "upwards of 14" are injured. Three suspects in the shooting, apparently wearing tactical gear, burst in and started shooting. They apparently have fled the scene and the search is on. A police spokesman said the shooters behaved as if they "were on on a mission."

UPDATE: I'll leave it to other media, but I should say reports around 6 p.m. indicate authorities believe they have killed or have in custody suspects in the shootings after a car chase. But one may still be at large. Here's what LA Times had.

The evening updates moved the casualty count r\to 14 dead and 17 wounded, some critical. Police also announced two suspects had been killed and a third person was in custody. A search warrant was being served in nearby Riverside, Calif. Some reporting indicated a workplace dispute involving people at the county public health department holiday lunch at which the shooting began, but nothing has been firmed up.
