Witnesses said workers at the Inland Regional Center locked themselves in their offices when gunfire erupted in the building.
As It Happens host Carol Off spoke with Sherman Dumas, the lead pastor at the nearby Kingdom Culture Worship Centre, shortly after 4 p.m. ET.
"Right now, it's an absolute frantic atmosphere as some family members are waiting to hear where their family members are, and how they are doing," Dumas says from the scene outside the centre.
As the manhunt for the suspects goes on, nearby stores, office buildings and at least one school are on lockdown.
