SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - The Southern California social services center where a husband and wife killed 14 people and wounded 21 earlier this month plans to reopen its administrative offices Jan. 4.

The Inland Regional Center said Wednesday that repairs to its Buildings 1 and 2 should be completed by that date.

Building 3, which houses a conference center where the shootings took place, suffered substantial damage and is closed indefinitely.

The other buildings suffered some damage as police searched them. They were locked down after the Dec. 2 shootings for repairs and a subsequent investigation.

The center provides services to 31,000 people with such disabilities as autism, epilepsy and Down syndrome.

While it has been closed hundreds of counselors, therapists, case managers, social workers and others have been working in the field.
