Mr & Mrs Massacre- San Bernardino Shooting

On Wednesday morning, California health inspector and US citizen Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and his Saudi wife of two years, Tashfeen Malik, 27, dropped off their six-month-old baby with Farook's mother, saying they were going to a doctor's appointment.
By noon, according to police, the couple had donned assault clothing, armed themselves with rifles and stormed a holiday party attended by San Bernardino County employees, killing 14 people and wounding 17 others. According to some reports, the duo had GoPro cameras strapped to their body armor during the shooting.  
Before sunset, after a massive manhunt and a violent shootout with police on a residential street, they were both dead, leaving a grieving community with few clues to puzzle out the motive for the carnage.
Those who knew Farook, among them his colleagues at the San Bernardino County Public Health Department, described him as a devout Muslim but not someone who often talked about religion.
'He never struck me as a fanatic, he never struck me as suspicious,' said Griselda Reisinger, a former colleague.  
Co-worker Patrick Baccari, who shared a cubicle with Farook, told the Los Angeles Times he and his young family appeared to be 'living the American dream.'

In the pre-dawn hours of Thursday morning, a search team comprised of police and federal agents combed the residence in Redlands, California, associated with Farook and his wife. A black sedan parked outside was also searched.
The home is where officers initially saw a vehicle matching the description of the suspects' SUV in the hours before the final gun battle that killed them. A bomb squad on Wednesday swept the building with robots.
Public records show it is a possible residence of a family member of Farook. 
Earlier in the day, US Attorney General Loretta Lynch said at a press conference the Justice Department will be offering ‘any and all assistance necessary’ as the investigation into the California mass shooting continues.
Lynch was speaking at an event about criminal justice at the White House. She called Wednesday’s deadly massacre ‘unspeakable.’
Lynch says the government doesn't know a lot yet about the incident. But she says the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Service and other federal authorities have been dispatched.
The attorney general said that whatever the results of the investigation, there's no place for this type of violence in the US.
