It is now determined that Wednesday, Dec. 2nd’s shooting was carried out by husband and wife, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik.
President Obama called the couple’s actions an, “act of terrorism.” Since both shooters were immediately shot and killed by the police, it is unclear of their true motives behind the San Bernardino shootings. However, the LATimes states, “Officials said Malik pledged allegiance to Islamic State in a Facebook post and Farook had contact with people from at least two terrorist organizations overseas.”
28 yr old American, Syed Farook, worked at the San Bernardino Department of Public Health. Tashfeen Malik, 27 yr old Pakistan native, was a local pharmacist. Inquisitr reports, the two had a 6 month old daughter together.
Trudy Raymundo, director of the Department of Public Health, described The Department and Farook’s former workplace as upbeat and friendly. She said today, “This is a very tight close knit group…they are beyond coworkers,” she added. “They are friends and they are family.”
Despite the “friendly” workplace, Farook and Malik had an arsenal of ammunition and pipe bombs in their home which they then used to carry out the San Bernardino attacks.
