A heavily armed man and woman terrorized this city on Wednesday, killing at least 14 people and wounding at least 17 at a social services center before leading the police on a manhunt culminating in a shootout that left the two suspects dead, the authorities said.
Panic, chaos and rumor gripped this largely working-class community about 60 miles east of Los Angeles as the attackers carried out the nation’s worst mass shooting since the assault on an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., nearly three years ago.
Chief Jarrod Burguan of the San Bernardino Police Department identified the two suspects as Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27. Mr. Farook was born in the United States. Family members say they were married and had a 6-month-old daughter.

The suspected attackers, Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, opened fire on a holiday party that Farook had attended and angrily left earlier Wednesday at the Inland Regional Center, police say. The pair then fled and were fatally shot during a police chase hours later. A third person who fled the scene was detained, but police later determined he was not involved in the incident.
On Thursday evening, the San Bernardino County Coroner's office released the names of the 14 deceased. Victims include 12 fellow county employees and a coffee shop owner who worked at the Inland Regional Center when the shooting took place.

The relatives waited in the gym all day for word on their loved ones. Every hour or so on Wednesday, a bus would pull up to the community center, and survivors from the shooting in San Bernardino spilled out into the open arms of their relieved family.
And with each bus and joyous reunion, the crowd of roughly 100 waiting relatives grew smaller; until by the end of the night, only 20-some remained. They sat on bleachers of the indoor gym that authorities had turned into a command center, and tried to reassure one another that hope still remained.
What little was left, however, disappeared when an officer approached the group and announced with solemn regret: There were no more buses left.

Following the mass shooting on Wednesday in San Bernardino, in which 14 people were killed, presidential candidates expressed their condolences and spoke out about the killings – but only the Democratic candidates seemed to call for action on gun control.
Here we compare the candidates’ statements with their National Rifle Association ratings. The pro-gun lobby group gives politicians a grade ranging from A to F that reflects their voting record on gun rights. Some candidates who do not have a legislative track record on second amendment issues do not yet have NRA scores.
