超人のジャーナリスト・アイ 160  カリフォルニアでの銃乱射事件

今日未明カリフォルニアの障害者施設で銃乱射事件が起きた。先日コロラドの病院で銃乱射事件が起きたばかりだ。またもや惨劇である。下記はNPRの電子版からの転載。

At least 14 people were killed and more than a dozen others wounded when up to three suspects armed with long guns entered a facility in San Bernardino, Calif., and began shooting, authorities said Wednesday.
Hours after the shooting, which began at 11 a.m. local time, TV images showed a bullet-riddled, dark colored SUV hemmed in by police tactical vehicles and surrounded by officers in what appeared to be a residential neighborhood. San Bernardino Police Sgt. Vicki Cervantes says police officers traded fire with occupants of the SUV.
"I believe there may be a suspect down," she said, but she warned that she did not know if that situation was connected to the earlier shootings.
At a later press conference, Cervantes said a police officer sustained non-life-threatening injuries. She also said one suspect had been hit and one suspect may still be "outstanding."
"I believe there are two at this time being dealt with," Cervantes said. "If there were originally three suspects, there's still possibly one outstanding."
At an earlier press conference, San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said the suspects opened fire at the Inland Regional Center, which is part of the California Department of Developmental Services and serves people with developmental disabilities.
Asked about the number of suspects, the police chief said, "I have repeatedly been told the number is three," though he cautioned that the information was coming from witnesses at the scene. Burguan said the attackers fled in what was potentially a dark SUV. He did not provide a description of the suspects or discuss a possible motive.
"These are people that came prepared," the chief said. "They were dressed and equipped in a way to indicate that they were prepared and they were armed with long guns not handguns."
The assistant director of the FBI's Los Angeles field office, David Bowdich, said at the news conference, "Is this a terrorist incident? We do not know."
Burguan also said that several hundred people who were in the building were taken to a safe location and that buildings in the surrounding area had been locked down.
Roads near the scene have been shut down and the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department was warning people to avoid the area.
Terry Petit said his daughter works at the Inland Regional Center and that she said she was inside when the sound of gunfire erupted.
He choked back tears as he read her texts toABC 7 Eyewitness News: "People shot. In the office waiting for cops. Pray for us. I am locked in an office."
San Bernardino Mayor R. Carey Davis said in a statement that the community "experienced severe loss and severe shock" Wednesday.
"It is critical in moments like these, our City unites in supporting the victims, their families, and the effort against crime in our City. We will continue to utilize all safety resources available to the San Bernardino community to deal with this tragedy," he said.
A White House official said that President Obama was briefed by his homeland security adviser on the San Bernardino shooting.
"We don't yet know what the motives of the shooters are, but what we do know is there are steps we can take to make Americans safer and that we should come together in a bipartisan basis at every level of government to make these rare as opposed to normal," Obama told CBS News Wednesday. "We should never think that this is something that just happens in the ordinary course of events, because it doesn't happen with the same frequency in other countries."
This is a developing story. Some things that get reported by the media will later turn out to be wrong. We will focus on reports from police officials and other authorities, credible news outlets and reporters who are at the scene. We will update as the situation develops.
