12:00 pm
good afternoon, i'm gasia mikaelian. we'll take you straight to san bernardino where county leaders speaking. -- are speaking. let's listen in. >> first off i want to talk about the work the jttf has done. the joint terrorism task force and our local state and federal partners through the week. this is noes been a restful weekend nor should it be. continue the investigation at breakneck speed as long as we need to do that and we will do exactly that. i want to correct something because it continues to come
12:01 pm
up. there was a search warrant that was executed at the center street address in redland last weekend. this past weekend. in that search warrant i want to make it clear because we're actually getting a lot of calls about misbehavior. the reality is, when the fbi or any other law enforcement organization executes a search warrant, we obtain legal process that's signed by a federal or a state judge. we then make entry into that -- those premises and we will take the items that can be seized under the scope of that warrant. that is exactly what was done that day. when we leave the residence, we will either hand the keys to the owners. we will hand -- or we will secure the residence if it was breached as was exactly what the case in this incident. we secured it with screws and wood. and left the premises. once the fbi and our local
12:02 pm
partners left that premises -- those premises, anything that occurred as far as forced entry or if anyone was allowed into that residence has absolutely nothing to do with us whether they were allowed in by the residents or by the landlord. i want to make that clear, maintain confidence in the law enforcement professionals. secondly i want to clarify. we -- we briefed you a couple of days ago about the pipe bomb components that were taken and some of the pipes and some of the components of pipe bombs that were removed from the house on center street. if you recall, we gave you a number of 12. i don't want to get too technical because i'm not an expert on bombs. however, we do have experts that did that search. they did some removal. of all those devices from that house. and ultimately, it appears there are 19 types in that house that we have removed. somewhere in a bag, we're not going to unpack them one by one and they had to remove all
12:03 pm
these components and these devices and take them out to a range and then they began to safely extract them from the bag and safely pull them apart and count all the components, photograph all the components and ultimately admit them into -- submit them into our evidence. so the number has changed from 12 to 19. that's not 19 pipe bombs. that's 19 pipes that could be turned into pipe bombs if all the components are there and present for them to actually be construed that way. next i want to talk about the radicalization issue. many of you had concerns -- or questions rather about did the female radicalize the male in this case? the answer is we still do not know. but i will say this -- as the investigation has progressed, we have learned and believe that both subjects were radicalized and have been for quite some time. now how did that happen? the question we're trying to get at is how did that happen. and by whom and where did that
12:04 pm
happen. and i will tell you right now, we don't know those answers at this point. next thing i want to -- along those lines is foreign contacts. we are working with our foreign counterparts to determine as much as we can. it's like any other investigation but this one is incredibly large. we are attempting to expand that investigation out and build it and build a picture of each person the timeline, and ultimately the crimes that they committed. that takes time. we are in day five and i want everyone to recognize that. but we're working with our foreign counterparts and we're also working with the fbi's legal attache offices all around the world and they are assisting in those efforts with our foreign counterparts. next thing i want to mention has come up already. yes, we do have evidence that both of these subjects did some target -- participated in target practice in some ranges
12:05 pm
-- within the metro area or within the los angeles area. that target practice in one occasion was done within days of this event. the scope of this investigation i want to discus very quickly. this investigation is massive in scale. everyone knows that. we have conducted between -- i would say well over 400 interviews by now of people around this city and i know some of them have called you and said they've been investigated -- or interviewed rather. that's fine. we -- that's what we do and we'll continue to do as many interviews as necessary for this. finally, there's been some questions about the total -- total station, the recreation of the crime scene. what we are essentially doing is applying survey technology to the crime scene. and when i talk -- when i'm talking about the crime scene, i'm talking about the initial crime scene at the irc. where all the victims were. i'm not talking about the officer-involved shooting. yes, we are still holding that
12:06 pm
location because we are continuing to be extremely methought cal and we have -- methodical and we have actually brought in a reconstruction team to apply the tools, the survey tools to ultimately paint that picture of why -- of how everything transpired that day. we have transported over -- we have collected over 320 pieces of evidence in this investigation so far. and we have transported a number of those pieces of evidence to washington, d.c.. primarily to the fbi laboratory, to the bomb lab back there, the terrorist explosive device analytical center. the last thing i want to talk to you about very quickly before i open it up for questions and then i'm going to introduce some of my counterparts up here to address you as well. we have found evidence of planning, participation, financing. what i will tell you this -- i'm sorry. we have found evidence of preplannings, let me correct that. what i want to say is i want to make sure the public rest
12:07 pm
assures again, we are an apolitical organization and we will get to the bottom of this and we want to find out everyone who has -- who participated in the preplanning. if there was anyone else. we don't know everything yet. we want to find out everyone who profited from it. financed it and i'm not saying there is anything like that. but we will leave no stone urn turned. just like -- unturned. just like i said in the past. the last thing is we have to remember this is a human interest -- this is a human tragedy. this is truly a tragedy what occurred. we have brought out office of victims' assistance personnel from washington and this is what they do. they're very familiar with this. we are going to at some point hopefully this week, meet with the family members of the victims. both the decedent's victims and the injured victims. and that is crucial part for us to allow them to and questions and so that we can address them
12:08 pm
face-to-face and talk to them about our full commitment. if they don't want the meet with us, that's -- to meet with us, that's their choice and we understand. if they want to meet we're there for them. very, very important. i'm going to take a few questions, not as many as as i did the other day. yes, ma'am. [ inaudible ] >> who was in control during the attack and malik fire the first shot? >> we don't have any sense who was in control and i will tell you i want to be -- i want to be crystal clear here. we do not see any evidence so far of an oconus plot. outside of the continental u.s. plot. we may find it someday, we may not. but right now we're going to focus -- beginning to focus to build it out from there. >> questioning the grandmother at this point? >> i'm not sure if we're done questioning her yet. yes, ma'am. [ inaudible ] >> i've heard those same reports and aim aware of them and we are continuing to work as i said earlier with our
12:09 pm
overseas parters ins and our legal -- partners and our legal attache officers -- pardon me? [ inaudible ] there's -- i'm not going to get into that at this point. yes, sir. [ inaudible ] >> several years ago -- >> i'm unaware of this. what i can tell you is we did not have an open investigation into mr. farook at the time of this incident. >> thank you. >> listening into the assistant director of the fbi in los angeles, detailing the newest information into the investigation into the mass shooting in san bernardino last wednesday. that left 14 people dead. we understand now investigators found 19 pipes that could have been turned into pipe bombs at the couple's home in redland. if fbi assistant director also said he has now found that both people, both of the shooters, were in fact radicalized and even said that's been case for
12:10 pm
some time in his words. and of course the fbi is promising a thorough investigation. wanting to reassure the public that the agency itself is doing all that it can to find the so many answers that are still outstanding. as we learn more from the news conference in san bernardino, we're of course monitoring it in the newsroom and we'll have any new developments for you right here. but it has been five days now since the county restaurant inspector and his wife killed 14 of his co-workers. the reopening of the county government offices came today and many say that signals an effort to return to normalcy. for a community that's been in shock and mourning since the killings last wednesday. following the attack, all county offices were shut down except for those offering essential services. as workers returned this morning, san bernardino county supervisors spoke at a news conference to reassure workers who may be nervous about their safety and to honor those who lost their lives. >> these were dedicated public servants.
12:11 pm
they weren't politicians. they weren't celebrities. they weren't law enforcement officers. they weren't soldiers. but they became the front line in a battle against terrorists. >> while most county workers are returning to work today, those at the environmental health services division where the shooter worked will be off for at least another week. president obama made a rare oval office address to the nation last night. about the san bernardino shooting. the president vowed to destroy isis and called for new gun control measures as well. in particular, mr. obama said congress should pass legislation that bans people on the no-fly list from buying wells. bay -- buying weapons. the white house says it was intended to reassure a nervous nation but critics say it fell short. >> i know there are some who reject any gun safety measures. but the fact is that our intelligence and law enforcement agencies no matter
12:12 pm
how effective they are, cannot identify every would be mass shooter. >> we need a strategy much more intense than what he's suggesting, a no-fly zone. a safe zone if we want to deal with the refugee problem in syria, create safety inside syria. >> president obama also called for muslim communities to speak out against extreme ideologies from groups like isis. he also asked for tech companies to work with law enforcement to pinpoint suspected terrorists. the investigation into the internal shooting is now -- san bernardino shooting is now expanding overseas. the interior minister of pakistan launched his own investigation and says he'll work with federal authorities here in the u.s. the female shooter was born in pakistan before moving to the u.s. last year. and marrying syed farook. the couple was shot and killed by police in a gun battle after the shooting rampage. the san bernardino shooting has caused concerns for many communities but larger muslim populations. community leaders in fremont organized a candle light vigil for the victims last night to
12:13 pm
honor the first responders. they say it's important to acknowledge what happened and not to give up or feel hopeless even in the face of such senseless violence. >> it's for peace as well as call for action that enough is enough. we need to do something, stand up as community leaders and get the community together. >> they say that community leaders will challenge politicians to do more. saying even small steps can help lead to larger ones. more on the shooting of course throughout the day and now to news much closer to home. the close encounter between a helicopter and a drone has some pilots here in the bay area concerned. the drone came within 30 feet of a chp helicopter this weekend during a search for a stolen car near martinez. ktvu's janine de la vega has the details. >> reporter: anyone can go into a store or online and buy a drone. but they're not required to
12:14 pm
know the restrictions. and on saturday, a drone came within 30 feet of a chp helicopter in martinez and the pilots say that is way too close. the crew saw a red light outside the aircraft and quickly veered to avoid hitting it. the crew beamed it light and -- its light and tracked the drone to a home in martinez. the young man flying it is an international student from china attending college and his host family said he meant no harm. with the helicopter going over 100 miles an hour, the two and a half pound drone could have gone through the wind shield or into the rotors bringing it down. we spoke to a private pilot over the phone this morning who says the faa needs to regulate drone use better because many people who buy them see them as toys. >> caller: what pilots see it as is a flying machine that you can purchase that can do damage to other aircraft that you can buy and fly with literally no training whatsoever. and incidents like this one that you just spoke of, i think those are going to become more
12:15 pm
pre will not. >> reporter: authorities say the drone operator was flying too high and supposed to stay a few hundred feet off the ground and he left the drone get too far away and out of his sight. he wasn't cited or arrested but could depending on what the investigation shows and this is going to continue being an issue because christmas is just around the corner and drones are expected to be a very popular christmas gift this season. >> raising the cost of parking your car at b.a.r.t.. coming up the four stations parking lots that are seeing the price hikes today. >> also a live look outside. it is cloudy and cool. up next, our meteorologist rosemary orozco will let us know if we can expect any more rain this week.
