Jarrod explained that the two were armed with assault rifles and handguns, and exchanged fire with police. He also added that an officer was hit in the shootout, but his injuries are not life-threatening.
He mentioned that a third person was spotted running away from the scene, but that individual has been taken in to custody.
However, he's not sure if the person-in-question is actually involved with the San Bernardino tragedy.
After the shootout was over, the police began searching the surrounding neighborhood for any additional suspects, because they had received calls from residents who claim they heard someone jumping fences in the area.
However, during the conference, the chief confirmed that the search is now being wrapped up. He said they didn't find anyone else in that location, so they're lifting the shelter order that had been in place.
He said the bomb squad is actively examining a device that is believed to be a potential explosive, and that there is more "sensitive" material around the SUV.
David Bowdich — who is the FBI assistant director in charge of the LA field office — explained that they haven't been able to confirm whether or not the San Bernardino shooting is an act of terrorism. He said it's too soon to tell but added:
"We will go where the evidence takes us."
He did say that the FBI, the local law enforcement, and the ATF are all working together during the investigation. But he expressed that it is still ongoing, saying:
"This is a fluid, active investigation. We are still gathering facts."
Authorities have yet to provide any identification or description of the shooters, and haven't discussed a motive at this point.
Our hearts go out to everyone affected by these terrible events.
According to reports out Sunday morning, Angelina Jolie's political ambitions with the United Nations may have caused a rift between her and Brad Pitt, at least based on a source "close to the couple."
TMZ is reporting that Jolie's dream had been to become a top official with the UN -- which makes sense, considering all the charity work and traveling to developing nations that she does -- but that didn't fly at home with Brad.
