UPDATE: Unconfirmed photo of Farooq Saeed, the man suspected by many to be behind the San Bernardino Massacre?
Shoebat The police in San Bernardino mounted an intense manhunt for gunmen who fired dozens of shots Wednesday inside a conference hall where county employees had gathered at a service center for people with disabilities in San Bernardino, Calif. leaving at least 14 dead and 14 wounded.
Police also used a robot to detonate a “device” found inside the building, according to the sources, who added that investigators were assembling a battering ram to gain access to the office complex.
While it is not yet clear whether the San Bernardino shooting was an act of terrorism, the massacre did prompt a response from Department of Homeland Security. Flight radar information showed that a Homeland Security Pilatus PC12 has been circling over San Bernardino at close to 7,300 feet. Officials from the FBI and ATF also responded to the scene.
In a news conference Wednesday afternoon, and FBI official said they did not know if the attack was an act of terrorism, but officials said the men “came prepared” with long guns and body armor.

Inquisitr According to Sky News, San Bernardino Sheriff’s Office Spokeswoman Teri Adams said witnesses saw the suspects target an office Christmas party in the conference room. The California shooting suspects were apparently spotted changing clothing near the scene of the crime, and they were wearing military gear. It is believed that up to three men fled in a black SUV and so far no arrests have been made.
One suspect is named Farooq Saeed and Inland Regional Center witnesses claim the man was “acting strangely” before the shooting began. San Bernardino police also say there is no proof at this time that the San Bernardino mass shooting is linked to an ISIS terrorism attack, but the FBI says there is uncertainty at this time.
“At this point, I know one of your questions is going to be ‘Is this a terrorist incident?’ I will tell you right now we do not know if this is a terrorist incident,” said David Bowdich, an assistant director for Los Angeles FBI’s office, according to CNN.
ISIS Threatens California
While no one has claimed responsibility for the California attack, in recent times ISIS has directly threatened to attack multiple states within the United States, including California, within six months.
“We have 71 trained soldiers in 15 different states ready at our word to attack any target we desire. Out of the 71 trained soldiers 23 have signed up for missions like Sunday, We are increasing in number bithnillah [if God wills]. Of the 15 states, 5 we will name… Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, California, and Michigan…The next six months will be interesting.”
According to Breitbart, “most experts believe the 71 figure is inaccurate and that the threat is only inspired by ISIS, not directly linked to the group,” but they claimed these experts “did not dismiss the possibility that some trained soldiers linked to ISIS are operating in the country.”
In November of 2015, Michael Morell, the former Acting Director and Deputy Director of the CIA, wrote an editorial for Time magazine where he stated that “ISIS will strike America.”
