Multiple assailants terrorized San Bernardino Southern California city Wednesday, killing at least 14 people and wounding at least 17 at a social services center for the disabled and leading police on a massive manhunt, including a shootout in a residential neighborhood that left two suspects dead and a possible third in custody. The FBI does not rule out an Islamic terror attack.
The lead gunman connected to the mass shooting is believed to be a US citizen, according to a federal law enforcement source speaking on condition of anonymity.
The source added that links to international terrorism are still on the table, however, as the assailants could have been encouraged by a foreign terror group.
CBS News confirms one of the suspects is named Sayed Farook, an American citizen. One of the other suspects is reportedly his brother. The female’s relationship to either man is unknown.
Farook was married and had one child.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Farook was a business taxes representative for the California State Board of Equalization. He is a 2003 graduate La Sierra High School, and most recently studied finance at California State University Fullerton until 2013.
