recapping our top story now. investigators are trying to determine if the attack on a california social services center was terrorism. the alleged shooters syed farook and his wife killed 14 people and wounded 21 others. syed farook had been in contact with known islamic extremists on social media. the pipe bombs they assembled are similar to designs from the al qaeda magazine "inspire." but the fbi says, so far, there is no official link to terrorism. four guns, two automatic rifles
legally and they had enough ammunition to slaughter others with 4,500 rounds. mike madden was one of the first officers on the scene and he says the carnage was unspeakable. >> i tell you, it was something, although we train for it, it's something you're never actually prepared for. it was immediately evident that the reports that we were getting were 100% true. as we entered into the conference room, the situation was surreal. it was something that i don't think, again, we prepare for and they try to -- an active shooter, we talk about sensory overload, they try to throw everything at you to prepare you for dealing with that. what you're seeing, what you're hearing, what you're smelling, and it was all of that and more. it was unspeakable the carnage that we were seeing, the number of people who were injured and,
and the pure panic on the face of those individuals that were still in need and needing to be safe. the initial 50 people did not want to come to us. they were fearful and they were in the back hallway area and that actually heightened my concern that -- and my fear that potentially the suspects were in that hallway holding them hostage and waiting us for to enter into the hallway. we had to tell them several times, come to us, come to us. and ultimately they did and once that first person took the motions forward, it opened the flood gates and everybody wanted to come and get away from that as quickly as possible. so, you know, we can't panic in those situations. these people have already dealt with enough. the last thing they need to see is their police officers panicking. then we went further into the building and that was a difficult choice to have to make
ing ing assistance but our goal at that time had to be trying to locate the shooters and deal with them. there's so many families, as we go into these holiday seasons, are now going to have to deal with the tragedy that were left behind by this senseless acts of tough to deal with. coming up after your local news on "cbs this morning," shooting. plus president obama talks with norah o'donnell about climate change. that is the "cbs morning news"
