GlNAFERAZZI Los Angeles Times had killed 14 people at the Inland Regional Center. Holiday party suddenly turns into nightmare By Paloma Esquivel, Louis Sahaqun and Richard A. Serrano Masked assailants armed with assault rifles opened fire on a holiday banquet for county employees in San Bernardino on Wednesday, killing 14 people and plunging a nation already on edge about terrorism and mass shootings into hours of tense uncertainty. The massacre at the Inland Regional Center set off a surreal day in which hundreds cowered in their offices, schools went on lock-down, SWAT teams swarmed neighborhoods and a four-hour manhunt played out on live TV. The finale was a gun battle on a residential street that left two suspects dead. San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said investigators had not determined a motive for the shooting, in which 17 people were wounded. But an official at the FBI, which is working with local agencies, said he could not rule out terrorism as a motive. "It is a possibility, but we don't know that yet, and we aren't willing to go down that road yet," said David Bowdich, assistant director in charge of the FBI's Los Angeles office. Authorities identified the dead suspects as Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27. A family member said they'd been married two years and had a 6-month-old daughter. Farook was a U.S. citizen, born in Illinois, and a five-year employee of the government agency holding the holiday banquet. His coworkers said Farook, a Muslim, had traveled in recent years to the Middle East. Burguan said he could not rule out that a personal conflict led to the shooting.
