FBI Officially Now Investigating San Bernardino as Act of Terrorism

fbiAt a press conference this afternoon, the FBI announced that it is officially investigating San Bernardino as an act of terrorism.

It was not officially confirmed that this was a terrorist act, though information revealed about the couple that carried out the attack and killed 14 people were reportedly radicalized and one of them swore allegiance to ISIS during the attack.

The FBI provided some updates at a presser today, including how they’re still trying to piece together the evidence, and why it was legal for the media to enter the suspects’ apartment. They said after they had looked over the property for evidence, they released the property back to the landlord before the media was able to tour inside.

We will update this post with video when it becomes available.
