New York Giants safety Nat Berhe tweets his cousin was killed in San Bernardino shooting

New York Giants safety Nat Berhe tweeted Thursday that his cousin was one of the people who died during a mass shooting in San Bernardino on Wednesday.

According to authorities, 14 people died and 21 others were injured when suspects Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik fired at least 65 bullets when they stormed an office holiday party at the Inland Regional Center. Farook and Malik were killed in a shootout with police later Wednesday.

So far the names of only four of the people fatally shot are known.

Berhe was born in Fontana and graduated from Colton High. He tweeted an image of a map Wednesday showing how close the regional center is to an office building where he says his parents work.

Berhe was a fifth-round draft pick for the Giants in 2014. He played in all 16 games as a rookie -- registering 11 tackles, four assists and one fumble recovery -- but has been on injured reserve all season this year following calf surgery.
