SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. -- Authorities say the woman who helped her husband kill 14 people a banquet at a social service center in Southern California had a Pakistani passport and came to the U.S. on a fiancee visa.
 
David Bowdich, assistant director of the FBI's Los Angeles office, says Syed Farook, a U.S. citizen, traveled internationally and entered the U.S. with Tashfeen Malik in July 2014.
 
He said at a news conference Thursday that the bureau doesn't know all the countries Farook went to and that a motive for the shooting is not yet known.
 
San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan says the couple had more than 1,600 bullets with them when they were killed in a gunbattle with police.
