'Multiple casualties ... some confirmed fatalities' at Calif. center shooting

By Tribune wire reports

Police confirm that people have died in the shooting at a Southern California social services center.

San Bernardino police Sgt. Vicki Cervantes told KCBS-TV on Wednesday that "there are multiple casualties and there are some confirmed fatalities." She says she doesn't have specific numbers.

She told the television station that it appears there was more than one shooter. She believes they were wearing "military-style" attire.

One or more gunmen opened fire Wednesday at the Inland Regional Center, shooting several people as others locked themselves in their offices, desperately waiting to be rescued by police, witnesses and authorities said.

Federal and local law enforcement authorities converged on the center and searched for the shooter or shooters at the center.

Police were working to secure the scene about 60 miles east of Los Angeles, Cervantes said.

No arrests have been made. Police are searching for an SUV that fled the scene, federal law enforcement sources told the Los Angeles Times.

Briana Pastorino, spokeswoman for Loma Linda University Medical Center, says four patients have been received at the trauma center and she didn't know their conditions. She says the hospital expects to get three more patients.
