At least 14 people have been killed and 17 injured in a mass shooting at a social services centre in southern California.

Two suspects were killed in a gun battle with police, following a dramatic car chase.

San Bernardino police have named the suspects as husband Syed Rizwan Farook and wife Tashfeen Malik.

Local police chief Jarrod Burguan says the motive still isn't clear:

"Mr Farook is a county employee in the public health department. He has been employed there for five years. He was at the party, he left the party early, under some circumstances that were described as angry - or something of that nature."

 

UPDATE: The FBI, ATF, SBPD and #SBCSD are all in unified command in this incident. Following up on tips led officers...
