A bomb squad is now inside the building to scan for more devices after the first suspicious device was confirmed to be "neutralized," reported Trace Gallagher.

UPDATE 3:44p ET: Reports suggest that police are now assembling a battering ram to gain access to one of the buildings.
FBI and ATF teams are now on the scene as authorities continue to search for the gunmen.
The Los Angeles Times has reported that law enforcement sources tell them they are looking for at least three heavily armed shooters who fled the scene in a SUV, Shepard Smith said.
Fox News cannot yet confirm these reports independently.
UPDATE 3:38p ET: Glenn Willwerth, a witness at the scene, told Shepard that he saw someone “enter into a “black SUV and slowly pull away," though he could not be sure if the person was in fact the gunman.
“He was headed towards me, so I thought that we were actually going to be able to get a good look at him,” he said.
“But it turns out he veered away, and just calmly drove away very slow. I don’t know if that was them, or you couldn’t tell who was in it.”
Some have reported as many as 20 people shot, Shepard Smith said.
Authorities are evacuating a building at the center after a suspicious package was found inside, Trace Gallagher reported.
“It’s a very active scene,” Sgt. Vicki Cervantes, a spokeswoman for the San Bernardino Police Department, told reporters. “It’s very fluid.”
Witness reports suggest conflicting information on what the suspects - or suspects - were wearing.
One account suggests that one or two shooters dressed in ski masks and bulletproof vests walked in and opened fire.
Another report said that someone dressed in camouflage was trying to leave the building, but was barricaded by law enforcement officers.
