It’s unclear how many people were in facility during shooting
All Terry Pettit could do was worry as he stood near the offices of the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California.
News of shootings at the agency for people with developmental disabilities was spreading fast and all Pettit knew about his daughter inside the building came from her text messages on his cell phone.
“Shooting at my work. People shot.”
“Pray for us. I am locked in an office.”
Pettit wept for his daughter as he spoke Wednesday afternoon with reporters. Sirens blared in the background.
“She’s been hiding,” he said.
While the details of yet another mass shooting emerged, relatives spoke of harrowing moments waiting for word about their loved ones.
A gunman or gunmen had killed at least 14 people and 17 others were hurt, officials said.
