LOS ANGELES: At least one person opened fire at or near a state social services agency in the Southern California city of San Bernardino on Wednesday and as many as 20 people were wounded, authorities said. The San Bernardino Police Department said on popular micro-blogging website Twitter that it had "confirmed 1 to 3 possible suspects" and multiple victims in the shooting. The agency called it an "active shooter" incident. The San Bernardino Fire Department said in a tweet that it was responding to reports of 20 victims. A police spokeswoman told the Los Angeles Times that the suspects were heavily armed and possibly wearing body armour, and CBS reported that a bomb squad was on the scene, trying to defuse what was believed to be an explosive device.
