Two heavily armed attackers opened fire on a banquet at a social services centre for the disabled in San Bernardino on Wednesday, killing 14 people and seriously wounding more than a dozen others in a precision assault authorities said.

Hours later, police hunting for the killers, riddled a black SUV with gunfire in a shoot out three kilometres from the late-morning carnage, and a man and woman with assault rifles, handguns and “assault-style clothing” were killed, San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said.

A third person who was spotted running near the gun battle was detained, but Burguan said it was unclear if that person had anything to do with the crime.

It was the nation’s deadliest mass shooting since the attack at a school in Newtown, Connecticut, three years ago that left 26 children and adults dead.
