(Gee. What are the odds?)
As I quoted earlier, a “training exercise” was underway when the shooting started.
Now we have this from the LA Times (“San Bernardino shooting: Dramatic video shows police storming Inland Regional Center”):
“At first, Dorothy Vong assumed it was a drill — just like all the others at her work. At the Inland Regional Center, where she’s a nurse, the staff works with clients and parents of clients who are sometimes angry. They have active-shooter drills every month or so.”
So this attack happened to occur during a monthly active-shooter drill…
KTLA reports (“More Than 14 Killed, 14-Plus Wounded After Up to 3 Shooters Open Fire: San Bernardino Police Chief”, Posted 11:19 AM [PST], December 2, 2015, by Tracy Bloom and Melissa Pamer) —here’s a key quote:
“The call first came in at 10:59 a.m. of multiple shots fired from the area of 1365 S. Waterman Ave., San Bernardino Police Department Lt. Richard Lawhead said. The department’s SWAT team was training nearby and was suited, ‘ready to roll’ and responded rapidly, Lawhead said.”
Note: KTLA report updated at 03:29pm [PST], updated at 06:33pm [PST], December 2, 2015:
“The call first came in at 10:59 a.m. of multiple shots fired from the area of 1365 S. Waterman Ave. The Police Department’s SWAT team was training nearby and was suited, ‘ready to roll’ and responded rapidly, Lt. Richard Lawhead said.”
—Yet another mass shooting where, by chance, a training exercise was going on during or prior to the event.
