SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. -- A police officer who responded to the shooting inside the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, Calif., on Wednesday promised he would "take a bullet" for a group of terrified people as he led them to safety.
On what appears to be cellphone video posted to YouTube, the officer leads the men and women through the building, telling them to keep their hands where he can see them.
“I’ll take a bullet before you do, that’s for damn sure,” he tells the group. “Everyone relax.”
The people in the group are mostly quiet but are afraid as they breathe hard and whisper. Some say thank you to the officer.
Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik are the suspects in the massacre that ended with 14 people dead and 17 injured.
