Police have identified a couple as the two shooters in the latest mass killing in the United States that left at least 14 people dead and 17 injured Wednesday, in the southern Californian city of San Bernardino. Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, who relatives later confirmed were married and were the parents of a six-month-old baby, were killed in a shootout later in the day.
The Los Angeles Timespublished a special late edition in the early hours of Thursday, beginning to piece together the events that led to the shooting during a holiday gathering of colleagues at the San Bernardino County's public health department, where Farook worked as a health inspector.
The motives are not yet clear. Relatives of American-born Farook said he was a devout Muslim, but knew of no connections to any radical Islamist. Coworkers also described him as kind and quiet. Malik's nationality is not yet known.
The couple appeared to be "living the American dream," said fellow health inspector Patrick Baccari, who shared a cubicle with Farook.
