A heavily armed man and woman dressed for battle opened fire on a holiday banquet for his co-workers in San Bernardino, about 96 kilometres east of Los Angeles, killing at least 14 people. Seventeen people were wounded, according to authorities. Ten were hospitalized in critical condition, and three were in serious condition, Fire Chief Tom Hannemann said.
San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan identified one dead suspect as Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, the other as Tashfeen Malik, 27, his wife or fiancee. Burguan said Farook was born in the United States; the chief said he did not know Malik's background.
The suspects were believed to have fled in a black SUV, prompting a massive manhunt through the city's streets.
