Police say they found 12 pipe bomb devices at a California home being searched in connection with Wednesday’s mass shooting in San Bernardino, as well as hundreds of tools that could be used to make improvised explosive devices.

San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said at a news conference Thursday that the attackers also left a device at the social service center where they opened fire. The device consisted of 3 connected pipe bombs with a remote control that apparently did not work.

Authorities say Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, killed 14 people at the center Wednesday. The number of wounded was raised Thursday to 21.

According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Twitter page, in the shootout between police and the suspects, approximately 76 rifle rounds were fired by the suspects and 380 rounds were fired by the officers.
