Police say at least 14 people have been killed in a mass shooting in Southern California. And another 14 are wounded.

警方表示,至少有14人在加州南部发生的一次大规模枪击事件中遇难,另外还有14人受伤。

The attack happened in San Bernardino at a training center for disabled people.

这次袭击发生在圣贝纳迪诺的一个残疾人培训中心。

San Bernardino police chief Jarrod Burguan​ spoke to reporters after the incident. He said it is believed that three gunmen were involved. He said the shooters apparently fled the area. The numbers of casualities may change and it is not known if the shooting was a terrorist attack.

圣贝纳迪诺警察局长贾罗德·博甘(Jarrod Burguan)在事件发生后对记者表示,据信有三名枪手参与。他说,枪手显然已经逃离该地区。伤亡数字可能会发生变化,尚不清楚这次枪击事件是否是恐怖袭击。

Burguan said there was a massive response to the shooting. He said several local and state security forces took part.

博甘表示,有关方面对这次枪击事件采取了大规模应对。当地和州级的一些安全部队也参与了进来。

Earlier reports said the shooters may have been dressed in military clothing. A police spokeswoman told the Los Angeles Times that the attackers were heavily armed and possibly wore body armor. 

此前有报道称,枪手可能穿着军装。警方发言人对《洛杉矶时报》表示,袭击者全副武装并且可能穿着防弹衣。

A bomb squadreportedly was deployed to try to disarm a possible explosive device.

据报道一个拆弹小组被部署过来试图拆除一个可能的爆炸装置。

This latest shooting comes less than a week after a gunman killed three people and wounded nine in an attack at a family planning and health clinicin Colorado Springs, Colorado.

上一次枪击事件发生在不到一个星期前,当时一名枪手在科罗拉多州科罗拉多斯普林斯的一个计划生育和健康诊所发动袭击打死了三人并打伤9人。

In October, a gunman killed nine people at a college in Oregon. In June, a gunman killed nine people at a church in South Carolina.

今年十月份,一名枪手在俄勒冈州一所大学打死了9人。今年六月,一名枪手在南卡罗来纳州一座教堂打死了9人。
