HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says he has called California Gov. Jerry Brown following the deadly mass shooting in San Bernardino and offered condolences and assistance.

Malloy says he and Brown commiserated Wednesday “about these kinds of situations taking place in our country and during our respective terms.”

He says Connecticut officials learned many lessons from the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting and have shared them with other state and local governments. Twenty children and six adults were killed in the Newtown, Connecticut, massacre.

Malloy says police patrols will be stepped up at the state’s Department of Developmental Disabilities facilities.

Authorities say the California shooting killed at least 14 people and wounded more than a dozen others at a facility serving people with developmental disabilities.
