Riverside County sheriff’s officials in the Coachella Valley Thursday were reviewing developments in San Bernardino, where a mass shooting claimed the lives of 14 people and left at least 17 others injured, but cautioned there was no immediate danger of a similar occurrence locally.

Sheriff’s officials said there is “no credible threat in our area,” but noted deputies were on alert just in case.

The shooting, reported about 11 a.m., Wednesday, occurred at an office of Inland Regional Center, a nonprofit that provides services to developmentally disabled people.

Authorities stepped up security at an Inland Regional Center location in the city of Riverside. There was no immediate word on any increased security measures at city facilities in Palm Springs and Indio.
