San Bernardino shooting suspects’ home opened up to media by couple’s landlord.
SAN BERNARDINO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES (DECEMBER 4, 2015) (REUTERS) – The home of a couple accused of carrying out a deadly California shooting was opened up to reporters on Friday (December 4) by the landlord. A Reuters crew was among the journalists inside the home.
Journalists crowded the small apartment where Tashfeen Malik, 27, and her husband, Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, lived. The couple died in a shootout with police on Wednesday (December 2).
The couple are accused of killing 14 people and wounding 21 others at a holiday party at the Inland Regional Center social services agency in San Bernardino, about 60 miles (100 km) east of Los Angeles.
Government sources said on Friday that Malik apparently pledged allegiance to a leader of the militant group Islamic State.
Documents and Farook’s California State University alumni card lay strewn on a desk, and papers and several Qurans lay in a jumble on a bed.
Investigators say that the couple had two assault-style rifles, two semi-automatic handguns 6,100 rounds of ammunition and 12 pipe bombs in their home or with them when they were killed.
