"I am very sad, deeply sad and shocked something like this happened here in my community," Farhan Khan said. "I love this country, I'm living in this community for a long time and something like this happened here."

Khan, who is married to Farook's sister, said that he last spoke with his brother-in-law last week and that nothing seemed out of the ordinary then. He said Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, had a baby girl about six months ago, KABC-TV reported.

The couple had taken the baby to drop her off at a relative's home Wednesday morning.

"On behalf of my family, we all are shocked and very sorry for what happened," Khan said. "I have no idea why [Farook] would do that."

Farook was one of three suspects who is believed to have opened fire at a social services facility in San Bernardino, California, Wednesday, killing 14 people and injuring 17.
