The mass shooting occurred at the Inland Regional Center, which offers services to those with developmental and physical disabilities, and claimed the lives of at least 14 people and wounded at least 17 others. The motive behind the rampage was still unclear, and terrorism has not yet been ruled out.
"I am still not willing to say that we know that for sure," said David Bowdich, assistant director of the FBI, during a news conference, International Business Times previously reported. "We definitely are making some movements that it is a possibility."
An FBI raid was underway Wednesday night at an apartment in Redlands, California, as police served a search warrant in connection with the deadly shooting at the Inland Regional Center.
