Watch Live: Police provide update on San Bernardino shootings 

 
 
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) -- The latest on the mass shooting at a social services facility in San Bernardino, California (all times local):
 
10:05 a.m.

Police say the attackers who killed 14 people at a banquet in Southern California had more than 1,600 bullets with them when they were gunned down in their SUV.

San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said at a news conference Thursday that the shooters had more than 3,000 rounds of ammunition at their home, 12 pipe bombs and hundreds of tools that could be used to make improvised explosive devices.

Burguan says Syed Farook and his wife sprayed the room at a social service center in San Bernardino with bullets but police didn't know if any one person was targeted.

 Police and the FBI say the attack was planned but they do not know a motive.

Police say they found 12 pipe bomb devices at a California home being searched in connection with a mass shooting as well as hundreds of tools that could be used to make improvised explosive devices.
 
San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said at a news conference Thursday that the attackers also left a device at the social service center where they opened fire. The device consisted of 3 connected pipe bombs with a remote control that apparently did not work.
 
Authorities say Syed Farook and his wife or fiancee killed 14 people at the center Wednesday. The chief says the attackers fired between 65 and 75 rounds at the center. They later died in a gunbattle with police.
 
Burguan also says the number of people wounded in the mass shooting in Southern California has risen from 17 to 21.
