A law enforcement official says an FBI dive team is searching a small San Bernardino lake as part of an investigation into the massacre that killed 14 people.

The official has been briefed on the investigation but isn’t authorized to speak publicly.

The dive team is searching Seccombe Lake Park on Thursday. The small lake is in an urban park about 3 miles north of the Inland Regional Center, the site of the Dec. 2 shooting.

It’s unclear what the team is looking for.

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 interviewed hundreds of people and conducted searches in the area looking for evidence.
