(AP) --A law enforcement official identified Syed Farook as one of the suspects in Wednesday's mass shooting in California.

Earlier in the evening, authorities announced a male and female suspect were dead following the shootings in California on Wednesday. A third person was detained and being questioned, according to police.

Police served a search warrant on a home in Redlands, California, in connection with the deadly shooting at a social services facility in neighboring San Bernardino.

City spokesman Carl Baker says Redlands police assisted San Bernardino police in the search connected to the Wednesday morning shooting that killed at least 14 people and wounded more than a dozen others.

An Associated Press reporter watched as a half-dozen vehicles carrying helmeted police drove into the area. One officer carrying an assault rifle ordered reporters to clear the area, and an armored vehicle parked outside a row of homes.

The action followed a gunbattle between occupants of an SUV and San Bernardino police not far from the original shooting scene.

The FBI is looking at several possibilities for what drove shooters to kill 14 people at a California social services center.

David Bowdich, assistant director of the FBI's field office in Los Angeles, says one possibility is workplace violence and another is "terrorism."o.

San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan says authorities found what they believe is an explosive device at the Inland Regional Center where the mass shooting occurred.

Burguan also says one other person was detained who was seen running near a gunbattle, but it's not clear if that person is connected to the mass shooting.

    Dear Barack Obama,

    When were you planning to call Islamic Terrorist, Islamic Terrorists? Please stop asking for our guns because (A) You can’t have them according or our constitution and we won’t give them up regardless, (B) looks like we apparently need them what with all this unrest and active Muslim Islamic terrorists in our midst (thank you for that!) and (C) why haven’t you resigned or been impeached by this point? Everyone knows full well you are the most WORTHLESS President in the history of the union! That is being kind. So yeah get off your closet Muslim ass and resign already you useless single-minded liberal liar.

    Strange info being broadcast right now. An officer followed the truck from that house and was lead on a high speed chase for several miles, through the water district and a Target parking lot before heading south and turning East and ending up where they did. This whole Ar-15 or AK-47 thing is insane! If you’ve got a hole that is .223 (22) caliber, it’s an AR. If you have a 30 caliber hole, it’s an AK. The two look substantially different.
