San Bernardino Killings: 3 More Arrested
Federal prosecutors say three people connected to one of the San Bernardino shooters have been arrested in a marriage fraud conspiracy.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Thursday that those arrested include the brother and sister-in-law of shooter Syed Rizwan Farook. The third person arrested is the wife of Enrique Marquez Jr., a friend of Farook’s who has been charged for his alleged role in aiding the violence.
The two women arrested are Russian immigrants. Prosecutors say the three participated in a marriage fraud conspiracy that involved lying under oath to obtain immigration benefits.
On Dec. 2, 2015, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, a married couple living in the city of Redlands, targeted a San Bernardino County Department of Public Health training event and holiday party. Farook, an American-born citizen of Pakistani descent, worked as a health department employee.
Fourteen people died and 22 were injured in the attack. The couple died in a shootout with police four hours later.
