As authorities work to help victims of a mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, that has reportedly killed 14 people and injured 17, Lady Gaga and more celebrities have taken to Twitter to express their grief over another shocking tragedy. See the tweets here.
Lady Gaga and presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were among the first to respond to a shooting that occurred in San Bernardino, Calif., on Dec. 2. Initial reports say that the horrifying incident began at a facility for the mentally disabled, so far leaving 14 dead and 17 injured. As details are still being confirmed, more celebrities are tweeting their support for the victims, their families, and the people of the tragedy stricken California town.
The nation was struck with grief once again when ABC News reported that San Bernardino Police Department officials confirmed there was “an active shooter in the area of Orange Show Rd Waterman Ave near Park Center,” in the late morning of Dec. 2. Occurring just five days after three lives were taken in a shooting at a Colorado Springs, Colo. Planned Parenthood clinic, Lady Gaga, Hillary, Donald, and more celebrities immediately expressed their sadness over the latest tragedy on Twitter.
Update: The shooters have been identified as Syed Farook, 28 and his wife,Tashfeen Malik, 27. After fleeing the scene in SUVs, they were tracked to a home in Redlands, California, where they were killed in a shootout with police.
Thinking of the world today, praying the media doesn't reward killers with notoriety. Inspire peace. Use your power for harmony, not ratings

As Piers Morgan mentioned, the attack began at the Inland Regional Center, which is a nonprofit organization that offers assistance to “people with developmental disabilities,” according to NBC. Authorities are still looking for the suspects, which Fox 11 Los Angeles reported to be “three white males dressed in military gear” who fled the scene in a black SUV.
