Units took fire from a rifle out the back window before the van was hit multiple times. One suspect is down in the westbound lane of San Bernardino Avenue with a rifle lying near his motionless body. Another suspect fled on foot and police are in pursuit.
About an hour earlier, police said upwards of 14 people were killed and at least 14 wounded Wednesday in a shooting at a community and social services center. The shooter or shooters remain on the loose.
While law enforcement scours the surrounding area for the suspect and others search and secure the still-active crime scene, authorities are busing the survivors of the attack to a safe area where they can be reunited with their anxious friends and families.
