SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — An armed man and a woman suspected in a mass shooting in San Bernardino were killed in a shootout with police Wednesday.
A police officer was wounded in the shootout, but the injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
Officers followed what they thought was the suspects’ vehicle leaving a home in Redlands that was being looked into in connection with the shooting at the Inland Regional Center that left 14 people dead and 17 injured, San Bernardino Police Department Chief Jarrod Burguan said. A pursuit led them back to San Bernardino, where the vehicle stopped on East San Bernardino Avenue near Mountain View Avenue.
Police fired on the vehicle, leaving the two people dead, Burguan said.
Burguan later said the pair, armed with assault rifles and handguns, and were wearing “assault-style clothing.”
