Two suspects — one male, one female — connected to the mass shooting at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino were shot and killed during a confrontation with authorities, police said on Wednesday evening.

Footage aired on KNBC-TV showed police surrounding a black SUV that was riddled with gunfire after authorities and the suspects reportedly exchanged fire after being pursued. They were dressed in “assault-style clothing” and armed with assault rifles and handguns at the time of their deaths. One police officer was wounded during the incident but is expected to recover.

Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said a third person was detained after being seen leaving the scene of the clash between the suspects and authorities. However, this person has not been identified as a suspect.

The FBI is also searching through a house in nearby Redlands looking for explosives. Police said an explosive device may have been left in the suspects’ vehicle. Authorities were not willing to call the incident, which resulted in the deaths of 14 people, a terrorist attack.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the shooting may have been precipitated by an argument during a holiday event inside the building. Burguan confirmed that there was a dispute during the party and that one person left and returned, but said it was unclear whether that person was one of the suspects.

Bill Barr quietly pulls off a shake-up in a federal prosecutor’s office — but why?

Published

on

Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt last month to push U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman out of his position at the Southern District of New York blew up in his face. While Berman was ousted, Barr didn’t get the replacement he wanted, and House Democrats are now investigating.

But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
