SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) – The Southern California social service center where a husband and wife killed 14 people will not reopen until January at the earliest.
Officials had hoped to open next week, but Leeza Hoyt, a spokeswoman for the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, says that’s not practical.

Law enforcement hasn’t yet handed over control of the crime scene, after which the center will have to clean up. Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, opened fire on a holiday party of his co-workers there last Wednesday.
Hoyt says caseworkers are still doing field work. Employees help residents with disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy and epilepsy find jobs, housing and transportation.
The center wants to set up administrative offices off site so employees and vendors will continue to be paid.
