28-year-old Syed Rizwan Farook was described by coworkers as a devout Muslim who was rarely the one to start a conversation, but not as a religious fanatic.
Details are still emerging about the mass shooting that authorities say Farook and 27-year-old Tashfeen Malik carried out Wednesday morning at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino. Malik has been identified by a family member as Farook’s wife. Earlier, CNN reported that officials had told them that Farook had radicalized and was in touch with terror suspects, though the details are still unclear.
Today, we hear from a local Muslim religious leader on how the community is responding to the tragedy and where it will go from here.
