Witnesses told police investigating the shooting that they saw three men with long rifles, a law enforcement source said.

The three men got into a black SUV and exited the parking lot, the source said, citing the witnesses. After a SWAT team cleared the building where the shooting happened, a sheriff's bomb squad found a suspicious package on the second floor, the source said. An explosive ordnance disposal team determined it is "not normal" and they are going to handle it by robot, the source said.

The shooting took place at Inland Regional Center, a facility for people with developmental disabilities.

Some people were seen being wheeled away on gurneys after gunfire erupted at the Inland Regional Center. Others walked quickly from a building with their hands in the air and were searched by officers before being reunited with loved ones.

Fire departments are performing triage and treating victims of the San Bernardino, California, shooting, the San Bernardino County Fire District said on Twitter.

Inland Regional Center's Facebook page says it employs nearly 670 staff at its facilities in San Bernardino and Riverside counties, providing services to more than 30,200 people.

It aims to "work on a personal, one-on-one basis with people with developmental disabilities to make their lives better as they define it."

It is unclear how many people were at the San Bernardino facility at the time of the shooting.

San Bernardino is a city of just over 200,000 people located 60 miles east of Los Angeles.
