SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — The latest on the mass shooting at a social services facility in San Bernardino, California (all times local):
The brother-in-law of one of the suspects says he was stunned to hear of his relative’s involvement in Wednesday’s shooting.
Farhan Khan, who is married to the sister of Syed Farook, spoke to reporters at the Anaheim office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Khan says he last spoke to Farook about a week ago. He added that he had “absolutely no idea why he would do this. I am shocked myself.”
Khan says other family members asked him to speak at the news conference, and to express their sadness over the shootings.
A law enforcement official has identified Syed Farook as one of the suspects in a mass shooting in Southern California.
The official, who was briefed on the case, was not authorized to speak to the media about the ongoing investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity.
Police say two suspects — a man and a woman — were killed in a gunbattle with police after the shooting at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino.

The official did not provide more details.

Meredith Davis, a spokeswoman with ATF, told KCAL9-TV the two suspects who died in a shootout with police after the mass killing in California were each armed with a long gun and a handgun.
They were wearing tactical-style clothing that was “loaded with magazines for a gunfight,” she said Wednesday.
Davis said the suspects also threw a thick-gauge copper pipe out of the SUV, but no explosives were found inside.
The fake pipe bomb was equipped with a piece of material made to look like a wick.
Authorities are tracing the serial numbers on the guns and authorities will be dispatched to those addresses.

It’s unclear if anyone is inside the home.
