San Bernardino shooter's friend had supplied guns for attack: Enrique Marquez, a friend of San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook, was arrested on Thursday on charges of supplying the weapons for the 2 December shooting that killed 14 people.

Marquez had also supplied the powder that Farook had used to make pipe bombs that were found at the community centre where Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik carried out their attack.

Marquez and Farook had also reportedly conspired at least two terror attacks in California in 2011 and 2012, according to The New York Times

Apart from terrorism charges, Marquez has also been charged for falsely acquiring arms, and for immigration fraud for a 'sham marriage' with a Russian immigrant, the report said. 

Marquez, who had converted to Islam this year, was reportedly introduced to radical Islamic ideology by Farook when they lived in the same neighbourhood.
