Police Raid Home Of San Bernardino Neighbor Who Purchased Weapons
A neighbor of the San Bernardino shooters helped the couple get guns.
During the early stages of the attack on the Inland Community Center, authorities confirmed that the deadly couple were armed with an assortment of pipe bombs, as well as four firearms, two of which they bought themselves. As for the other two semiautomatic rifles, Enrique Marquez Jr., Farook’s former neighbor and friend, is thought to have been the third-party purchaser.
While the case is still ongoing, a source told the Sacramento Bee that officials have been trying to talk to Marquez about what he knew about Farook and assess whether he had any direct connection to the violence that left 14 dead and others injured.
According to ABC, the FBI does not consider Marquez a suspect as of yet, but officers appeared at his former home over the weekend with a search warrant, and ended up taking a box with them as they left.
