At least 14 people were killed and another 17 injured in a shooting Wednesday in San Bernardino, CA., when gunmen who were heavily armed opened fire during a function at a center for people with developmental disabilities, police said.
Police believe the two shooters Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik opened fire around 11 a.m. at the Inland Regional Center. “The San Bernardino massacre shooters had extensive amounts of ammunition and in their home at the time they were killed in a shootout with police,” the city’s police chief said Thursday.
Farook was allegedly a radicalized Muslim and in touch with extremists being investigated by the FBI for international terrorism, law enforcement officials said Thursday.
Farook’s apparent radicalization contributed to his role in the mass shooting, with his wife Tashfeen Malik, of 14 people Wednesday during a holiday party for the San Bernardino County health department, where Farook worked, sources said.
