The San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department confirmed deputies are responding to an active shooter situation involving one to three suspects.
Details are still scarce, but authorities asked residents to avoid the area of Orange Show Rd and Waterman Avenue, the sheriff’s department said. “Surrounding area remains VERY ACTIVE. AVOID!” they wrote on Facebook.
Local media reports the specific location is the Inland Regional Center, a medical facility that caters to those with developmental disabilities.
The San Bernardino Fire City Department said it is responding to a call of “20 victims” but that figure is still unconfirmed.
San Bernardino is located to the northeast of Los Angeles County.
