SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – With President Obama set to deliver a rare prime-time address from the Oval Office on Sunday, the investigation into the San Bernardino massacre continued Sunday both in the United States and Pakistan, where one of the attackers once lived.

The FBI on Saturday raided the home of one of the shooter’s friends as agents searched for the source of the guns used in the attack. And in Pakistan on Sunday, the interior minister said the country has launched its own investigation and offered assistance to U.S. authorities.

San Bernardino shooting victims: Who were they?

In San Bernardino, residents tried to get back to their routines after what is appearing to be the most deadly act of terrorism on U.S. soil since 9/11. On Saturday, many residents resolved to get on with life but said they were still anxious.

“I’m nervous,” said Fernandino Rodriguez, 39. “You hear ambulance and a firetruck’s sirens and you wonder: ‘What happened now?’ You’re constantly in fear.”

“I’m listening and watching for signs of trouble — sirens, even helicopters,” added Dyesha McCrumb. “That’s because I believe police still have not gotten to the bottom of this terrorist attack.”

Obama’s speech will provide an update on the federal investigation into Wednesday’s attack that killed 14 people at a holiday party at a San Bernardino conference center and will “discuss the broader threat of terrorism — including the nature of the threat, how it has evolved, and how we will defeat it,” according to the White House.

The FBI is investigating the shooting as an act of terrorism apparently inspired by the extremist group Islamic State.

  • Lets be real about this!

    They wish to distract the public saying this was because we are allowed to have protection. The reality of it is if these terrorists couldn’t get a gun, they would have hijacked an airplane, hijacked a fuel truck, hijacked a bus, built more pipe bombs, mixed up some poison, and many other things. It is not because guns enable them to kill, it is because they are killers and will go to the ends of the world to kill in the name of ALLAH! Their muslim brothers then denounce this because the Koran and their leaders because it is common and encourages them to lie and fake remorse. The answer is not more gun control, the answer is more upright citizens carrying protection to mitigate this threat.
