San Bernardino Shooter Received $28,500 Bank Deposit Days Before Attack

Suspected San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook received a deposit of $28,500 about two weeks before he and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, massacred 14 people.

Officials don't yet know the reason for the bank transaction, which was conducted via WebBank.com. Fox News reported that investigators found Farook converted $10,000 to cash via the internet-based bank and withdrew the money at a Union Bank branch in San Bernardino on November 10. A few days later, there were at least three transfers of $5,000 that appear to go to Farook’s mother.

Whatever the nature of the bank transactions were, investigators say that it is evidence the shooters had planned the attack well in advance.

Fox News also reported that investigators are looking into whether Enrique Marquez, a friend of Farook's since childhood, received any of the monies from the transactions in question. Marquez legally bought the AR-15 rifles that were used in the attack in 2011 and 2012, reported NBC News.

Officials say Marquez is not a suspect, but his longtime ties to Farook are being questioned to find out more about the shooter.

A neighbor who witnessed investigators search Marquez's home told NBC News that Marquez and Farook had been close friends since childhood but they seemed to grow apart over the past few months.

Marquez, meanwhile, checked himself into a mental facility after learning about the shooting and is said to be cooperating with authorities.

“Right now our major concern at the FBI, the ATF, and the JTTF (Joint Terrorism Task Force) is determining how those firearms, the rifles in particular, got from Marquez to Farook and to Malik,” assistant special agent in charge with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, John D’Angelo,said Monday.
