SAN BERNARDINO, Ca. — Two law enforcement sources identified one of the suspects in the San Bernardino shooting as Syed Farook.
According to public records, a Syed R. Farook worked as an environmental health specialist for San Bernardino County. It's unclear whether that is the same person connected to the attack. The shooting occurred at an event for the county's public health department.
Two other federal law enforcement sources, while not revealing the name of the suspect they were referring to, said he was an American citizen.
The attack killed 14 people and wounded 17 at a Southern California social services agency. Two suspects died in a shootout with police hours later, authorities said.
One police officer was injured in the gunfight with the two suspects, who were confronted in their getaway vehicle after fleeing the scene of the shooting in San Bernardino, about 60 miles east of Los Angeles.
The shooting rampage marked the deadliest U.S. gun violence since the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in December 2012, in which 27 people, including the gunman, were killed.
