7:02 am
>> 14 people were killed in the rampage. another 17 wounded. police say there were just the two shooters, the husband and wife, despite early reports of there being three, both of them were killed in that shoot-out leaving behind a 6-month-old baby. >> so hard to imagine. there is a live look at where it all unfolded. a center to help people, some of the most vulnerable in our society and our team coverage starts with amy on the scene in san bernardino. good morning, amy. >> reporter: george, robin, good morning to both of you. in fact, right behind me across this field is the very building where that horrifying tragedy unfolded and, in fact, you can still see the vehicles, the cars left behind by all of those employees who raced out of that building. some of them taken by bus. some of thof taken by planambul. a man left some say in an angry state and returned with his wife both armed with assault rifles
7:03 am
and semiautomatic handguns. a firsthand glimpse inside the terror at the social services center. >> i'll take a bullet before you do. that's for damn sure. >> reporter: which culminated in this chase, dozens closing in on this black suv. >> shots rang out. >> reporter: hundreds of shots fired as the married couple inside the vehicle battled with 20 officers. when it was over, the two suspects, 28-year-old syed farook who worked in the building and his wife, 27-year-old tashfeen malik both dead. it started at 11:00 a.m. >> male in black clothing still firing rounds. >> reporter: when the heavily armed couple entered a conference room at the inland regional center which serves the mentally disabled during a work training conference. >> multiple shot, shots going off like crazy, one right after the other. >> reporter: police arriving on the scene within four minutes, the entire three-building

7:06 am
the building. it was captured, this video, by timmy hilliard who was working there at the time and timmy joins us now this morning. so good to see you, timmy. we're glad that you're okay. we know it had to be terrifying. where exactly were you when this started to happen? >> i was right above the building 3 and building 2 where that video shot from on the third floor and one of my colleague's offices, the rest of my teams and colleagues were boarded up into two different conference rooms with doors and tables against the doors and i -- me being a photographer i wanted to see and what was going on out in the -- with everything that's going on so i actually took video after seeing what i saw to show everybody what else was happening around. >> and describe what you were seeing, timmy. >> i saw two bodies laying on the back of the building. one hunched over on a bench looked to be male and there was
7:07 am
a female laying flat on the ground and she -- neither of them were moving and then within a few minutes the video shows there's s.w.a.t. and everybody else storming into building 3 with alarms going off. >> you received a text message alerting you to what was happening. >> yes, one of my colleagues sent a text there was an active shooting going on and at the time i was thinking maybe there was a guy or a person with a gun walking around the facility or the grounds, and then i heard a lot of my colleagues running and stomping and crying, so i went to go see what was happening and then i heard that there were bodies down and instinct of me taking over i went to check out the facility and wanted and had to see what was going on. >> you jumped right into action like that. can you give us an idea about the complex, about the facility and how you were able to get out so quickly and safely. >> building 3 is more of a
7:08 am
housing for auditorium, facilities, dances, whatever we can do with our consumers and at that time the last video i shot there was -- there were s.w.a.t. and everybody coming into our facility so my colleagues and i went back to the conference rooms and we had a p.a. system alert from the police department to come out with hands up with badges in hands to let them know we're friendly so they won't shoot. we're letting them know that we are part of regional center as well and i was letting them know at the time that there's at least 50 to 100 upstairs that were coming down. >> the authorities acted so quickly and saved so many lives and your video just gives us an incredible insight into what you and others had to endure. >> thank you. >> hey, timmy hilliard, all the best to you, thank you very much for joining us. you take care. >> thank you. >> all right. >> you too. >> we are also learning more about the two shooters this
7:09 am
morning, the husband had a good government job. the couple had a home and a new baby. abc's matt gutman is in san bernardino with more on that side of the story. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, robin. that's right. this is a middle class community of stuccoed condos, christmas wreaths on the doors but overnight we heard an explosion coming out of that house, the bomb squad sending in a robot after officers battered down the door and still at this hour investigators are trying to piece together how and why this plot was hatched. co-workers describe 28-year-old syed farook seen here on an online dating profile as a soft-spoken devout muslim who rarely discussed his religion in the office. >> that's nothing i can remember that would lead me to think he may do this type of thing. >> he certainly seemed mild-mannered on his dating profile on this site describing himself as allah fearing, calm,
7:10 am
thoughtful, a simple man looking for a girl who would wear a hijab. according to chris nwadike, the health safety and environmental inspector born in america found the type of girl he was looking for abroad. >> he said he found a wife online from saudi arabia. he got permission to go there and marry her. >> reporter: police believe that woman could be tashfeen malik his 27-year-old accomplice. the couple had a baby and the office, colleagues say, the same one the couple allegedly targeted wednesday throuew a ba shower for them and abc news confirmed they dropped their 6-month-old infant off with farook's mother before heading off on that deadly rampage. telling farook's mother, they had a doctor's appointment. farook reportedly left the building shortly before an office photo in what many describe as an agitated state. >> he was acting nervous, left the building. 20 minutes later or so the shooting began. >> reporter: returning, police
7:11 am
say, with malik and armload of guns and bops. his brother-in-law overnight condemning the attack. >> i have no idea. i have no idea why would he do that. why would he do something like this? i have absolutely no idea. i am in shock myself. >> reporter: expressing his shock and condolences to the families. >> i just cannot express how sad i am for, you know, what happened today. >> reporter: that couple leaving behind, of course, that 6-month-old infant, a baffled family and very rattled community here. and investigators still trying to piece together how they stockpiled all those arms, those -- all that ammunition, the explosives without anybody knowing about it. george. >> so many questions to sort through right now. thank you. more answers now from our chief investigative correspondent brian ross, our senior justice correspondent pierre thomas and former fbi special agent brad garrett in washington. brad, let me begin with you. as this was unfolding yesterday afternoon knowing that the shooters had escaped this an
7:12 am
suv, some thought they might go far but ended up so close to home, so close to the incident. >> maybe for two reason, one they believe they got a clean getaway and to restock. more weapons, more ammunition possibly more explosives because what we don't know at this point was there a round two? >> a round two and, brian ross, what more are we learning about the possible motives about the shooters? >> well, appears to be a hybrid workplace jihad. he had issues, he targeted his co-workers but recently had traveled to saudi arabia where he met the woman he says he married on his website, the dating line website and appears to be an all-american boy, snowboarding, and guns and likes to relax by going in the backyard for target practice. >> pick up on that idea. seems to be some kind of a hybrid incident. a lot of planning here. >> two lines of inquiry. they are looking at the workplace angle. what happened that could have
7:13 am
sparked this. they're also looking at did he get radicalized online? was there a meeting or something overseas that could have sparked this, as well. they say they have not made a final determination but those are the two primary thing. >> this has been such the big fear, the idea you can simply go online and that's how you get inspired. >> exactly. and i talked to a senior official just a few moments ago who said that this may be some kind of weird combination, where just last year you had a case in oklahoma where a man beheaded one of his co-workers. that turned out to be workplace related because he had just been dismissed but also they found some material online that may have suggested radicalization. >> that was the same with ft. hood and major hassan who targeted his fellow employees at the military base but amirs to have been radicalized online. debate whether to call it terrorism or workplace violence. in the end it didn't matter to the victims. >> there was a hell of a lot of planning that went into this and my source just told me how did he suddenly go from being
7:14 am
agitated and coming back with that much weaponry. >> and body armor. the fbi has studieds these mass shootings, 160 active shooting situations, only two not done by lone wolves >> that's correct, george. have we entered a new era here? i don't know. husband/wife, she looked like she was, you know, a coequal to him during the shooting. there's got to be, george, some training going on here. they're too casual with the weapons from the vehicle inside the hull so where did they train? who trained them, et cetera. >> relatives, brian ross, aspects and echoes of the boston marathon bombing. >> absolutely, where the family says they were shocked. they had no idea in the case of the tsarnaev brother, the older brother radicalized and the younger brother and tried to lead a normal life.
7:15 am
>> that is what is so stunning, the idea this kind of planning could go on in secret without being detected by anyone. >> yes, the secret service just came out with a report yesterday that looked at attacks against government facilities and one of the prime things they saw over and over were missed warning signs. >> and right now so far nothing is turing up. >> in this case the involvement of a woman is very unusual. neither isis nor al qaeda allows women to be warriors or fighters. they're not allowed to martyr themselves, a kind of bon think and clyde as it were of terrorism. >> so much more to learn. i know you'll be on it all day long. back to robin. >> the shooters killed 14 people. 17 others injured. many of them taken to a hospital in loma linda and abc's kayna whitworth is there right now for us. good morning, kayna. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. just moments ago i got an update on the conditions of the people that were brought here. in all at loma linda hospital they brought in five adult patients yesterday and as of this morning we know that their
7:16 am
conditions are three listed in fair and two are listed in critical condition. now, this is the only level one trauma center in this area. other patients were taken to arrowhead hospital. we know there six patients were brought in, one person was already released last night. now, we spoke with the sister of a young woman who was shot yesterday, she's 27-year-olds, denise perazzo and this morning the bullet is still lodged inside her. doctors are unsure whether they'll ever be able to remove it. hours after the shooting doctors received a bomb threat here and they have been working under a heightened sense of alert ever since that happened. now, the doctors here are trained for this but we saw emotions running high. they have been attacked at home and they are doing an incredible job. robin. >> all right, kayna, thanks very much. >> so much trauma on the scene right there. robin, there have been at least 56 mass shootings already this
7:17 am
year. we've seen president obama speak after so many of them and addressed this latest rampage last night. abc's jon karl is at the white house with that. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. this is the fifth time the president has had a comment on a mass shooting just in the last five months, and in an interview just as the news was breaking about this shooting, the president said instances like this are simply too common here in the united states and even before knowing anything about the shooters or how they got their weapons, he said it is time for congress to pass tougher gun laws. >> yeah, we have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world. and there are some steps we could take not to eliminate every one of these mass shootings but to improve the odds that they don't happen as frequently. >> reporter: and this happened just after the president returned from paris where he visited the site of the deadliest of the attacks that rocked that city less than three weeks ago laying a rose at a
7:18 am
memorial outside the bataclan theatre and called the inability to stop gun violence in the united states the greatest frustration of his presidency and, george, as you mentioned at the top of the show with 14 dead, this is the deadliest mass shooting in this country since what happened in newtown, connecticut, at the massacre at the elementary cool three years ago. >> any word whether we'll hear from the president. >> reporter: no word but i imagine there's a good possibility it will happen. >> jon karl from the white house, thanks very much. to ginger, a big storm hitting the northwest this morning. >> there is. i have a precarious forecast. columbia river gorge encased in ice. a parade of storm that is

you are looking live at the scene at the latest deadly rampage to stun our nation. that is the inland region newtown in san bernardino, california, a center to help the mentally disabled. >> two people, the shooters, family members say they're a husband and wife who have a 6-month-old baby opened fire during a work training event killing 14, injuring 17 others before they were killed in a shoot-out with police. amy is on the scene for us this morning and joins us again. good morning, amy. >> reporter: good morning, robin and george. right behind me is where that deadly rampage unfolded and over to my right you can see there is a significant command center set up by the fbi working through the night trying to figure out the motive here, what made this married couple execute this
7:31 am
gruesome attack on his co-workers and that is what they have been doing for hours and hours and they will continue to do that until they can try and figure out what caused this gruesome attack. in the meantime, i've been speaking with eyewitnesses, one of them told me a pretty harrowing story. he was in an office building just behind where the attack took place. he heard the gunshots, he saw people running past his window. he had a firearm so he took out his handgun and he ran out and actually positioned himself near a truck and he saw the chaos unfolding. people running out, screaming. their hands above their heads and something caught his eye. two people he says dressed in black calmly walking amid the chaos to a black suv. he said he was so sure that those were the ones responsible and aimed it at the black suv as it came towards him. the wall manner in which they left was eerie and was a big
7:32 am
heads-up to him they may be the culprit and felt like he escaped something very potentially harrowing but witnessing what he saw this community, he said, will never fully recover from the events of yesterday. and part of the moments that were captured were from one news chopper here in the area. everyone was watching this one feed. we were seeing things happen live and unfolding across the nation and the world and matt gutman has his story. he joins me just about ten miles east of where i am right now, matt. >> reporter: amy, of course, that chase for that black suv started here just a few miles away from where you are right outside the home of those suspects. we were on the ground watching s.w.a.t. teams race back and forth across the city all afternoon yesterday but the only real way to see the entirety of this attack and that chase unfold was from the sky. that chopper providing those incredible and grisly images. these are the gripping moments that captured the nation's

8:02 am
do. that's for damn sure. >> reporter: which culminated in this wild chase. dozens of officers closing this on the two gunmen speeding away in a black suv. >> holy gosh. >> reporter: hundreds of shots rang out as the couple inside battled with 20 officers. when it was over the two suspect, 28-year-old syed farook and american born citizen would worked in the building for five years and his wife, 27-year-old tashfeen malik, both dead. it started at 11 a.m. >> male in black clothing still firing rounds. >> reporter: when the heavily armed couple entered a conference room at the inland regional center which serves the mentally disabled during a work training conference. >> multiple shots going off like crazy one right after the other. >> reporter: police arriving on the scene within four minutes, the entire three-building complex on lockdown. many watching from their window. >> making entry through the back door on the east side.

8:04 am
were blacked out. i couldn't see anything inside. >> reporter: and it is worth noting that there is a massive federal presence here at this hour. in addition to the fbi command post just over to my right, homeland security is here. the atf is here, all of them working through the night and together to try and determine whether or not this mass shooting was, in fact, terrorism related. robin, george. back to you. >> a lot of work. all right, amy, thank you. abc's matt gutman is about 15 minutes away from where amy was right there and where the police chase started leading to the shoot-out with the killers. matt, brand-new details right now? >> reporter: that's right, robin. good morning. what's so startling about this couple is how normal their lives seemed. they lived in this middle class community of stuccoed homes. there are christmas wreaths on the door. he worked for the san bernardino department of health as a health inspector for five year, was well liked enough by his colleagues that they threw him and his wife a baby shower. she even registered at target asking for things like diapers,

at his home looking to see if he was online that would have led to his radicalization and talking to his co-workers. he targeted people he worked with in a workplace revenge of some sort. all in all he appeared to be as matt said the normal american. liked snowboard, working on cars and liked guns. to relax he said he liked to go in the backyard and commit target practice. >> so far no evidence he was directed overseas even though he traveled to saudi arabia. >> reporter: nothing like that at all. the involvement of his wife would suggest otherwise. both isis and al qaeda frown on the use of women in any way as warriors or fighters. >> okay, brian ross, thanks very much. >> all right. now, michael, you have some more coming up. >> we have a lot coming un, robin. the latesten o eon the victims. how one man managed to contact loved ones after he was shot and

i think when people hear about i think it's important for, everyone to know that there is so much more to memory support than the stigmas you hearabout. that these residents still have lives and their lives still matter and that they are still living their lives. that they're not locked away and that they still have a lot to live for, you know, that they have people that care about them and they have people that love them and i love them, so their lives still matter. that is what i do this for. when emergency room doctors choose an otc pain reliever for their patients muscle, back and joint pain. the medicine in advil is their #1 choice. nothing is stronger on tough pain than advil. relief doesn't get any better than this. advil. welcome back to "gma." we want to get more now on the survivors of this horrific attack. 17 injured and kayna whitworth is at loma linda hospital. you're getting an update.
8:12 am
>> reporter: yeah, george, just moments ago we got an update on the victims brought here to loma linda. five adults in total. this morning three are listed in fair condition and two are listed in critical condition. of course, this is the only level one trauma center in the area so those with more serious injuries were brought here. >> yeah, this is the only level one trauma center but there were some taken to another hospital? >> reporter: yeah, absolutely, george. six people taken to arrowhead hospital and we actually spoke with the sister of one of those victims, she's 27 years old shot in the back and this morning, the bullet is still lodged inside. doctors are unsure if they'll ever be able to take it out. >> we were speaking all yesterday afternoon, such a chaotic situation even at the hospital where these victims were being brought including bomb threats. >> reporter: absolutely. that bomb threat coming in just a few hours after the shooting so they had to sweep the entire hospital and the surrounding area, even looking for explosives, so they've been operating on this heightened
8:13 am
alert ever since, obviously these are trained medal professionals but you can clearly see that this is taking an emotional toll. >> no question about it. the first responders all did such a great job. thanks very much. >> they really did. earlier i spoke with the family of one of the shooting victims, kevin ortiz is recovering after being shot in the leg and shoulder and his aunt rosa and sister kelsey updated me on his condition just moments ago. >> rosa and kelsey, we thank you very much for joining us this morning. please tell us how kevin is doing, rosa. >> kevin at this moment is stable. he sustained five gunshot wounds. his vitals are stable. unfortunately he's in a lot of pain, but we're trying to stay at his side and comfort him and give him all the support he knees at this moment. >> kelsey, we understand that your brother was able to make a phone call. who did he call and what did he
8:14 am
say? >> he called his wife, recently married of two weeks and he called my father and he just let them know that he had been shot, he had told my father that the police was next to him and guiding him out. told him that he loved them and that he had to go. >> just tell us a little about your brother. >> he's come a very, very long way and he has stepped out of a lot of bad habits and everything to become a great young man. graduating from college with high honors and, you know, being a very faithful man to god, dedicate himself to that and his life and getting married to an amazing woman. it's just such a tragedy that this had to happen. >> rosa, just tell us how you as a family, how the community there, how you are coping and handling such a -- all this
8:15 am
tragedy. >> we feel the love. we feel that everybody is with us at this moment even though it's been difficult situation, you know, and we just want to really send our condolences to the family members that didn't make it out. and kevin was one of the lucky ones to be able to still be here with us. >> oh, rosa. what you just said, i mean, to be thinking of others with what your family is going through says a lot about your entire family. rosa and kelsey, please, i know you can't wait to see kevin again and just thank you very much and just know that our hearts are with you. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> it's appreciated. thank you for all the support. >> as you know the rampage took place at a work event something so many of us fear when we see a story like this and we're joined now by psychiatrist and psychoanalyst dr. gail saltz and dr. janet taylor to talk about the implications of workplace violence and just overall i saw
8:16 am
you both watching the family. you've been watching all of this coverage. gail, first what are your thoughts when you see this? >> i am concerned for, frankly, the nation that we're upset, of course, and we have to manage our fear, we have to manage our anxiety so that we don't shrink our world which is the objective of people who do something like this is to terrorize us and make us shrink our world. but at the same time i'm also concerned we're getting desensitized to this kind of violence and that that kind of desensitization makes it harder to enact change and obviously we need to enact some change. >> she really -- i'm so glad you said that, janet. it gets so -- we don't -- this is not the new normal. it can't be the new normal and so many were saying is this the new formal and also the fact that so many people have become numb like here we go again and
8:17 am
there's a danger in that, isn't there. >> there is. as a nation we cannot accept the fact that any violence is a new normal and have to understand that gun control is important, you know, violence is a public health concern. and every time i see it, i mean it hits me in the gut and i think that is normal and it's acceptable and we need to use that to focus on what's good in our lives and to focus on connecting and certainly i'm so flat that "gma" is paying attention to public mental health and focus on how it affects us psychologically because invariably it does and even exposure to watching it on tv and listening to the families and thinking about trauma that all of us have had in our lives bears a toll on us so it's important to recognize it and think about it. >> because so many people watching this on television. >> yes. too many people are probably watching it over and over again and having it in the background while their children are in the room and, you know, unfortunately, you know, we have to go to work, right, and our
8:18 am
children are aware that we go to work and it does -- if you don't deal with whatever your thoughts about it, you have to keep in mind still the likelihood of being killed at work is less than the likelihood of being struck by lightning. and you have to be able to hold on to some of the logical thoughts which are difficult to do because when you have it coming through your screen constantly it feels like it's happening much, much more often but you have to hold on to that logic to, of course, be disturbed by what's going on but at the same time know that, you know, you're not going to stop crossing the street. you're not going to stop driving your car. you're not going to stop going to work and your world doesn't need to shrink and if you are one of the more susceptible people which is somebody who has an anxiety disorder already or somebody who's had past trauma. somebody who doesn't have social support like family and friends, somebody who is abusing substances those people are at greater risk than if this is
8:19 am
really getting you to you like you're making your world smaller, you need help. >> i do hear from people who say that. i was at a broadway play and somebody sitting next to me said, aren't you afraid being here in new york city and i'm saying, where could you go anywhere in this country but how do you talk, janet, in particular to children who are seeing this, who you can't shield this from. >> you limit their exposure. you ask them if they've seen it. how they feel. think about how you feel yourself and talk honestly about it in an age appropriate way but understand that the balance to trauma is recovery and that recovery comes from safety, so with your kids you establish safety routines that you do in your home. they can do in their school. you ask and talk to them about mourning or remembering it a certain way and focus on re-establishing your routines because no matter what has happened, no matter how scary the world seems kids have to go to school and study and listen to you. you have to go to work. you have to re-establish the
8:20 am
patterns of connection and love and that's what every single incidence of violence does, has to remind us about being kind to people who are within our reach? and focus on that and be honest. >> be honest with them and answer their questions and by re-establishing rare routine you help desensitize them to the fear in a good way, when you bring them back into doing the routine and seeing that they're okay and you're okay, then that actually diminishes the anxiety they feel. >> ow do we strike a balance? it's a conversation here at abc news, you know, we mention the shooters and do we show the pictures? how much do we show of what has happened? i mean, we have to do our jobs and then people also at home, they want to know but they don't want to know. how do we both trike that balance. >> we have an off switch with ourselves and so there are times you have to put down the smartphones and focus on face-to-face and talking about how you feel and getting back to those things, you know, terror
8:21 am
has happened for hundreds of years but what we had, we sit down at dinner time or we would talk and we would express how we feel. it's time to get back to that. talking to strangers, acknowledging things and talking to families about things that are hurtful. >> when you connect -- like the family dinner is hugely important especially at a time like this where you share your day, the innocuous things that give you a sense of safety, connectedness, you know, humans to bond over anything else and that is actually what makes us feel more relaxed. >> and hope. so you share stories of how you've overcome something or a family member and what they did and getting back to basics so we don't scare ourselves to the point that we have so much anxiety we can't function. >> some people will need help. >> absolutely, definitely. >> people who are surrounded by this or had a past trauma are likely to be evoked by this. >> i've been going out to commercial breaks and spending time with the audience and
8:22 am
they're smiling and happy and know what's gone on but planned a trip and went through with it. you both are very comforting. thanks so much. outside to ink ginger. >> not only are we tracking the storm we're looking at lenticular clouds. mild air is back, new york in the 50s as we go through the weekend. that's the big picture, let's get a check closer to home. all right, ginger a couple of sprinkles in the northern suburbs. sun breaking out to the south. as we look at the exclusive accuweather seven-day forecast. there's clouds around and runny breaks, it will be windy through the day, cooler, 52. and a nice stretch of weather,

8:25 am
>> it's a very big deal that a celebrity as large as sandra bullock adopted through foster care because what it's doing is telling the adoption community there is another avenue that hasn't been as explored. >> reporter: the levee family think it's a big deal too. >> okay. >> foster care is important and these kids need homes. >> reporter: of their seven kids, five are adopted. one from the u.s. foster care system like laila and they're thrilled one of hollywood's biggest actresses is speak out on an issue that hits so close to home. >> you don't have to be her to be a foster and adoptive parent. you don't have to have the money that she has and the lifestyle that she has. all you have to do is just be willing. >> reporter: as for bullock's new addition, she says the siblings are already close. adding "i can tell you absolutely the exact right children came to me at the exact
8:26 am
right time." and we're also happy for her. bullock says she fostered laila for some time but didn't want to go public until the adoption was final. anyone interested can get more information at adoptuskids.org. >> i hope a lot visit. thank you. coming up more of robin's exclusive interview with kobe bryant. what's next for him and what his wife thinks about that decision to retire. >> hey, everyone, it is 8:27
