Less than a week after a gunman killed three people at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado, there has been another mass shooting in America.
Late Wednesdays morning, three gunmen reportedly stormed into the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California, approximately an hour outside of Los Angeles, and opened fire on a group of country officials during a holiday event.
Witnesses say the men, who killed at least 14 people and injured 14 others, wore ski masks, carried long guns, and had on “tactical gear.” Despite both federal and local law enforcement officials on the scene, police believe the men may fled in a black SUV, and were later cornered nearby by police.

President Obama was briefed on the incident, and told CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell “our hearts go out to the victims and the families.” He also used the incident to call for gun control measures.

The Inland Regional Center serves developmentally disabled individuals. Wednesday’s shooting is the deadliest mass shooting in America since the Sandy Hook shooting.
