Two Shooting Suspects Dead
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — The latest on the mass shooting at a social services facility in San Bernardino, California (all times local):
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.
Police say another person who was spotted running near the gunbattle was detained but they have said it is unclear if that person had anything to do with the shooting.
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.
