Sooper-Scoop CONFIRMED!! San Berdoo Shooter Identified As Syed Farook
I hate to say I told ya so, but… OK I’m lying, I LOVE to say I told you so!! While I tried to be cautious in reporting this name earlier, it has now been confirmed as the identity of the San Bernardino mass shooter.
From NBC NEWS:
Multiple sources from multiple agencies identified one of the three attackers at the resource center to NBC News as Syed Farook. No other information was available, but a knowledgeable source said another member of the trio is believed to be Farook’s brother.
The identity of the woman was unknown.
David Bowdich, the FBI’s assistant director in Los Angeles, said the incident was being regarded as “possibly terrorism.” He wouldn’t elaborate.
There it is.. what they originally reported as a Planned Parenthood attack might be terrorism instead.
More on where they were caught:
The shooter or shooters fled in a black SUV after the shooting about at 11 a.m. (2 p.m. ET), police said. A bomb squad was still examining a suspicious device believed to be an explosive at the scene late Wednesday afternoon, San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said.
About 4½ hours after the shootings, police checking a lead in the nearby town of Redlands began chasing a car believed to be related to the incident, Burguan said. The chase led back to San Bernardino, where two people described as suspects — a man and a woman — were killed, he said.
Investigators were also carefully reviewing material at that scene as a possible explosive or explosives, Burguan said.
A third person who was seen running away from the scene was in custody, Burguan said. Investigators were also carefully reviewing material at that scene as a possible explosive or explosives, Burguan said.
Now this doesn’t mean it was terrorism, as the “work violence” details seem to indicate, but it’s also weird that he was able to coordinate the attack so quickly. We’ll have to await more information.
It sounds like they found the SUV after attempting to search Syed’s house in Redlands, so I’m not sure why it took so long to confirm this. But it’s confirmed.
Suck on that, haters.
