Police say the attackers came prepared with long guns. San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan declined to say what kind of weapons they used at the Inland Regional Center. Burguan says a motive wasn't yet clear, but that the shooters "were on a mission" and "came in with a purpose."

He says police are looking for up to three shooters.
The attack was concentrated in one area of the building where most victims were shot, while hundreds of other people weren't injured. Burguan says it's too early to say whether the attackers targeted that area or chose it out of convenience or at random.
The president and CEO of the center says the shooting happened in a conference area where the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health was having a banquet.

Opportunity Village, which also helps people with developmental disabilities, have locked the doors to their facilities with the except of the main entrances that are manned by personnel.

"Our hearts go out to those affected by the tragic incident in San Bernardino today that occurred at a facility similar to Opportunity Village that serves people with intellectual disabilities."

Opportunity Village has also requested an increased police presence following the incident.
