FOX 11 (Los Angeles) — Terrorism expert Brian Levin, director of Cal State San Bernardino’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, says the arrest of the older brother of the gunman in the Dec. 2 mass shooting in San Bernardino could be the FBI’s way of getting the family to reveal more information.

“Now that they have federal charges over their heads, they have great leverage to get information from them in exchange for a plea deal if they do in fact have any information and we just don’t know. There’s nothing in these papers that indicate they do,” said Levin.

The older brother of San Bernardino shooter Syed Rizwan Farook was arrested in Corona Thursday, along with his wife and sister-in law, on federal conspiracy, marriage fraud and false statement charges arising from the continuing probe into the massacre at the Inland Regional Center.
