Islamic State-follower Tashfeen Malik fired the first shots in last week’s deadly attack on southern California government workers — not her husband — leading investigators to consider that she might have been a “honey trap ” and the real brains of their terrorist assault.
And not only did Malik squeeze off initial rounds in the slaughter of 14 innocent people in San Bernardino, Calif. witnesses said her hubby, Syed Rizwan Farook, appeared to “hesitate” before joining in the bloodbath, witnesses have told intelligence officials, The Sunday Times of London reported.
Malik went to the left and Farook to the right, when they entered a large conference room of the Island Regional Center in San Bernardino, witnesses said.
She took a firing “stance” with her long gun and opened fire on workers gathered near a Christmas tree while Farook appeared to hold back – either losing his nerve or looking for a specific target – before he started to shoot, The Times reported.
The two quickly left the scene before cops arrived.
As Farook drove their black Expedition, Malik crouched in the back seat and opened fire on pursuing police.
Before they were killed by cops, Farook and Malik fired 76 rounds during the chase while police squeezed off 380 shots.
