The Latest: FBI searches California lake near massacre site

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) – The latest on the shootings in San Bernardino, California (all times local):

1:25 p.m.

A dive team with the FBI is searching a small San Bernardino lake near the scene of the massacre that killed 14 people.

FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says the team is searching Seccombe Lake Park, which looks more like the size of a pond. It’s unclear what the team was looking for.

The small lake is about 3 miles north of the Inland Regional Center, the site of the Dec. 2 shooting.

Authorities say Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, ambushed his fellow San Bernardino County health inspectors at a holiday party. The couple died hours later in a police shootout.

Since the shooting, the FBI has conducted hundreds of interviews and searched many properties in the area looking for evidence in the massive case.
