San Bernardino- Multiple sources from multiple law enforcement agencies have identified one of the shooters in Wednesday’s California mass shooting as Syed Farook. Police have just executed a search warrant at a Redlands, California address—an address that belongs to Farook’s family.
According to authorities, Farook was an environmental health specialist working for the county. Farook has been reported as the man along with a woman who were shot to death today during a shootout with police. The suspects had assault-style rifles and handguns, San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan told reporters. They were dressed in what he called black, tactical “assault style” clothing. One officer was injured in that shootout.
A third person was detained close to the scene of the shootout, but it is possible he is not connected to the shootings. It is also being reported tonight that the third person is actually a Syed Farook’s brother.
A CBS News correspondent earlier in the day had reported that witnesses said the shooters were three gunmen and were “white with athletic build”.
Earlier police said they were hunting as many as three suspects, who had fled in a black SUV.
14 people are dead and another 18 wounded after three people entered the the Inland Regional Center and opened fire Wednesday morning.
