Police identified the pair as Syed Farook, a 28-year-old US citizen who worked for the local county, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, whose nationality was unknown. They said the suspects were either married or engaged.
 Jarrod Burguan, San Bernardino's police chief, confirmed that both were dead, and that police no longer believed a third suspect mentioned earlier was at large

 The shooters targeted a year-end party taking place at a social services center in San Bernardino, about an hour's drive east of Los Angeles, killing 14 people and wounding 17 more.

 The massacre drew an angry response from President Barack Obama, who once again urged Congress to pass tougher gun control measures to stem America's epidemic of gun violence.

 The hall was let out for the holiday party by the Inland Regional Center for the disabled. Burguan said Farook had attended the Christmas party organized by the health department and left after an apparent dispute, only to return a short time later with Malik, armed with assault rifles and semiautomatic handguns.

Based upon how they were equipped, there had to be some degree of planning that went into this,' he said. 'I don't think they just ran home and put on these tactical clothes, grabbed guns and came back on a spur of the moment thing.'
