(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) — San Bernadino Police confirmed that authorities are responding to an “active shooter” situation at Inland Regional Center in San Bernadino, California.
A man named Marcos Aguilera told ABC News affiliate KABC that his wife was just evacuated from the facility, which cares for people with developmental disabilities.
“The guy came in next to her office and I guess started shooting,” Aguilera said, adding this his wife and others locked themselves in her office.
“She said all she heard was the shots, she didn’t get a chance to see anything,” Aguilera added. “She texted me, she said that she was inside, there’s a shooter inside shooting…she said, ‘I love you,’ and I came over here.”
Terry Petit’s daughter, who was inside the building, sent him a text saying there was a shooting at her work and people were shot. She is currently hiding inside of an office.
“Pray for us,” the text read.
Paul Lacroix said his son Casey, who works in the building, texted him about the shooting.
“They’ve got a good handle on it. It’s not good seeing all the ambulances coming in and then going out,” according to Lacroix’s text.
Mark Scroggins’ daughter was also inside of the building when the shooting started.
“She’s shaken up,” Scroggins said. “My loved one is safe and they need to do something. This is crazy, there are just too many shootings, too much bad stuff going on there.”
The San Bernardino Police Department has confirmed that there are one to three possible suspects involved in the shooting and up to 12 individuals are dead.
