San Bernardino, California during a press availability
held December 4, 2015 at FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C. 

In an official briefing on Dec 4, with respect to the San Bernardino shootings, Comey said the incident was "now a federal terrorism investigation led by the FBI and the reason for that is that the investigation so far has developed indications of radicalization by the killers and of a potential inspiration by foreign terrorist organizations." 
"We know that this is very unsettling for the people of the United States. What we hope you will do is not let fear become disabling but to instead try to channel it into an awareness of your surroundings."
According to the FBI officials, after the shooting, the Pakistani woman Tashfeen Malik, 29 - who teamed with her husband Chicago-born Syed Rizwan Farook, 29, in the mass murder - went on Facebook to pledge her allegiance to the leader of the Islamic State, the Post reported.
