BREAKING- Shooting Kills 16, Injures 17 In San Bernardino, Calif.

The shooting started at around 11 a.m. PST at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino and a banquet hosted by the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health is reported to have been targeted by the shooters.

More than 100 people were attending the party in the auditorium when the suspects fired and fled in an SUV. Two of the shooters, a man and a woman, were killed in gunfire exchange with police.

According to witnesses, the suspects were dressed in armour clothing and were equipped with assault rifles indicating they were on a mission.

One officer has also been wounded in the exchange of gunfire, but he is out of danger.

Initial reports suggest multiple perpetrators were involved in the mass shooting. This is rare in the US. In most of the active shooter incidents only two involved more than one shooter including the 1999 Columbine High School shootings.

Law enforcement says shooting by multiple shooters suggest a higher level of planning.
