San Bernardino, California - On Wednesday, federal and local law enforcement agencies launched an investigation into the lives of both Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and his accomplice (wife), Tashfeen Malik, 27, in connection with the mass shooting at the Inland Valley Regional Center that left 14 people dead and 21 others wounded. 18 of those wounded were County workers. Farook and Malik entered the medical facility for the development disabled and opened fire at victims just after 11:00 a.m. PT.
The suspects then fled, but were located later by citizen tips to police and both Farook and Malik were killed in a gunfight with police after their SUV was stopped. The suspects were wearing bullet proof vests, had tactical clothing on and two assault rifles and two handguns were recovered.
