On Wednesday morning, California health inspector and US citizen Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and his Saudi wife of two years, Tashfeen Malik, 27, dropped off their six-month-old baby with Farook’s mother, saying they were going to a doctor’s appointment.
By noon, according to police, the couple had donned assault clothing, armed themselves with rifles and stormed a holiday party attended by San Bernardino County employees, killing 14 people and wounding 17 others.
Before sunset, after a massive manhunt and a violent shootout with police on a residential street, they were both dead, leaving a grieving community with few clues to puzzle out the motive for the carnage.
Those who knew Farook, among them his colleagues at the San Bernardino County Public Health Department, described him as a devout Muslim but not someone who often talked about religion.
‘He never struck me as a fanatic, he never struck me as suspicious,’ said Griselda Reisinger, a former colleague.
Co-worker Patrick Baccari, who shared a cubicle with Farook, told the Los Angeles Times he and his young family appeared to be ‘living the American dream.’
Farook’s family was originally from South Asia, while Malik was believed to be from Pakistan and had lived in Saudi Arabia before coming to the United States, said Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Farook had an older brother, he added, who had served in the US military.
The gunman’s father, also named Syed Farook, seemed shocked when talking to the New York Daily News after the shooting.
“I haven’t heard anything,’ the elder Mr Farook said before his son’s name became public. ‘He was very religious. He would go to work, come back, go to pray, come back. He’s Muslim.’
In an online profile reportedly created by Farook and his parents six years ago on a Muslim dating site, the health inspector described himself as 6-foot-tall and said he didn’t drink or smoke, according to ABC News.
Farook allegedly wrote that he was part of a ‘religios [sic] but modern family of 4’ and that he enjoyed ‘doing target practice with younger sister and friends’ in their backyard.
