Suspects Identified in San Bernardino Mass Shooting


The two deceased suspects in the San Bernardino shooting were identified as Syed Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, by police chief Jarrod Burguan at a press conference Wednesday night. The two were married and had a six-month-old daughter, according to The New York Times.

Burguan said that Farook worked as an environmental health specialist for San Bernardino County for the last 5 years and was born in the United States.

Farook was at a holiday work event on Wednesday at the Inland Regional Center and left “angry,” Burguan said, before returning with Malik, both dressed in tactical gear and heavily armed with guns and explosives.

The shooting left 14 dead and at least 17 injured at the facility for people with developmental disabilities. Burguan said officials are “reasonably” confident that Farook and Malik were the only attackers.
