Farook’s Neighbor Enrique Marquez Arrested
Reuters reported U.S. prosecutors may press firearms charges against Marquez, who legally obtained the two AR-15 assault-style rifles that Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik, used in the December 2 massacre in which 14 people were murdered and 2i more victims were wounded. Federal law prohibits intentionally buying a gun specifically for someone else. The FBI is investigating whether those rifles were intended for use in a 2012 attack that he and Farook had planned
ABC 7 reported mere hours after the massacre, a Facebook posting from Marquez’s profile read, “I’m. Very sorry sguys. It was a pleasure.”
Marquez, 24, checked himself into a Los Angeles-area psychiatric facility after the shootings. Two U.S. law enforcement officials said Marquez had been drinking heavily when he checked himself in at UCLA.
Marquez cooperated with the FBI when he was interviewed. He and Farook had known each other for years; Marquez allegedly converted to Islam around 2008.
