California; Dec.3: At least 14 people were killed and 17 others injured today when a heavily-armed couple opened indiscriminate fire on them during a holiday party at a centre for people with disabilities in California, the latest mass shooting in the US.

The incident occurred when the employees of county health department were attending a party at the Inland Regional Centre. More than 500 people were present at the centre when shooting occurred, police said.

After the shooting, the couple wearing "assault-style clothing fled in a black SUV, leading to a lengthy police chase.

Hours later, the attackers were killed by police in an encounter.

The deceased suspect couple was identified by police as 27-year-old Tashfeen Malik and the man as Syed Farook, 28, a US citizen. Malik's nationality was not clear immediately.

President Barack Obama was briefed about the shooting incident.

"We should never think that this is something that just happens in the ordinary course of events, because it does not happen with the same frequency in other countries," said Obama, who is pushing for a tighter gun control.
