Authorities confirmed that a suspect has been shot in connection with a car chase as officers followed up their investigation into a mass shooting in San Bernardino, CA, Wednesday morning. One officer was wounded in the exchange of gunfire with non-life threatening injuries.

A black sport-utility vehicle was seen fleeing from the office complex where as many as three assailants killed at least 14 and wounded 17 others around 11:00 a.m. Shortly before 3 p.m., police began pursuing a black SUV in the city, though it was not immediately clear whether the car chase was linked to the attack, reports the Los Angeles Times.

TV footage showed dozens of heavily armed police officers approaching the SUV, and officers in tactical gear could be seen stalking through a San Bernardino neighborhood.

A body could be seen lying in the street near the vehicle. Blood was pooling nearby and a weapon was lying just feet away. One suspect is reportedly dead. SWAT is still searching for suspects.

A senior federal official who is monitoring the case said investigators now believe one of the shooters left the party after getting into an argument and returned with one or two armed companions.

Marybeth Feild, the center’s board president and CEO, said the San Bernardino County Public Health Department rented the conference room and they were hosting a banquet where the shooting occurred.

The room, which holds as many as 200 people, was decorated for a holiday party, according to Feild.

The motive for the attack remains unclear.

If this is a terrorist attack, we were warned by ISIS to expect it.
Law Enforcement will bear the brunt of the fighting.

As always Great Job to the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department and the other surrounding PD's. These guys have the best Swat team and training around. San Bernardino guys always handle the situation quickly and the right way. Glad these terrorist are now dead after such a heinous act. This goes to show the "demilitarization" of police is not the answer to appease these BLM idiots. Without these tools these people would have hurt and killed more deputies and civilians. The Bearcats and tac tractors carried out the operation smoothly without exposing more officers to risk. Obama cannot leave office fast enough. Now calling for gun control??? These terrorists are already over here and you want to take away guns from good people. U think the idiots buy their guns at gun shops? If we can't stop the trafficking of cocaine, meth, etc. how are we going to stop the influx of illegal guns entering the country or being sold amongst the turds. If some of these people were armed I'm sure the shooting would have stopped a lot sooner. Great job to law enforcement for stopping the threat. You have supporters out there no matter what the media says and the stories they usually twist.

Easy for Obama to call for gun control, he has armed guards protecting him. What a hippocrate, and Hillary too.These guys in our backyard now and Obama keeps letting more in with these Syrian "refugees" coming in. What a joke. Anyways, time to start supporting our Cops. It disgusts me how so many people hate them after what Heroes they prove to be, including today's actions. Until you walk a mile in their shoes you have no right to judge them. As a civilian myself and many others support you. Keep up the good work.
