ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A manhunt was under way for up to three suspects who shot as many as 20 people, some of them fatally, at a holiday party at a social services agency in the Southern California city of San Bernardino, authorities said. "We do have some preliminary numbers of upwards of 14 people that are dead and upwards of 14 people that are injured," said Chief Jarrod Burguan from the San Bernardino Police Department. He added that 1 to 3 suspects are likely to have fled. President Barack Obama was briefed on the attack and reiterated calls for stronger gun laws. "...We should come together in a bipartisan basis at every level of government to make these (shootings) rare as opposed to normal." Agents for the FBI and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were dispatched to the scene to assist local law enforcement in the investigation, representatives for the two agencies said.
