The official account of the Syed Farook mass murder
Interesting read, this. Many thanks to Mr. Cover for sending over the link via facebook.
On December 2, 2015, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, dressed in tactical gear and armed with .223 assault rifles, semiautomatic handguns, and body armor, opened fire during a holiday party at Farook’s place of employment and killed 14 people and injured 22. The pair fled the scene in a black SUV, but left behind three different explosive devices. It took authorities several hours to render the scene safe and account for the dead and wounded. The attack, and the fact that the couple had not yet been apprehended, paralyzed the surrounding area. Residents were advised to stay indoors and at least one school was placed in lockdown. Later that day, police responded to a tip and, in a shootout in which hundreds of rounds were fired, killed the couple. Police discovered over 1,600 unused rounds of ammunition in their vehicle. A broad federal terrorism investigation ensued, which is continuing. Immediately after the attack, authorities did not know the full identity of those involved or whether further attacks were planned.
