In a new statement, President Barack Obama said it "was possible this was terrorist-related" but stressed the FBI investigation has just begun. He stated bluntly:

"We don't know why they did it. We don't know the extent of their plans. We don't know their motivations."

He also allowed the possibility that the shooting was "workplace-related" since one of the slain suspects was a former Health Department employee.

A third suspect — a man rumored to be Syed's brother — is currently in police custody.

There are several conflicting reports regarding this man's identity.

While The Daily Beast claims he was a business tax representative for the California State Board of Equalization, the Los Angeles Times is reporting that public records show a man named "Syed Farook" was employed by the San Bernardino County Health department as an environmental health specialist.

Police are currently raiding a residence in the Redlands area that has been linked to Farook's family.

The mass shooting killed 14 and injured at least 18 more.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victim's family.
