San Diegans Encouraged to Donate Blood for San Bernardino Victims

 San Diegans are being asked to stop by the San Diego Blood Bank and donate blood to help the victims of the San Bernardino mass shooting. 

The Wednesday shooting was reported inside a center that serves people with developmental disabilities in the 1300 block of S. Waterman Avenue in San Bernardino, said Lt. Richard Lawhead of the San Bernardino Police Department.

Soon after the shooting happened, LifeStream Blood Bank in San Bernardino was locked down, unable to collect new blood at their main donor center and laboratory amid the tragedy. 

Hospitals in the area treated multiple victims wounded as a result of the shooting. With shooting victims, the need for blood is inevitable, San Diego Blood Bank said. 

San Diego Blood Bank asked residents to donate at local centers or mobile drives so they can assist in supplying blood products to hospitals in need.
