Police inspected a package at a Southern California UPS facility early Saturday after a driver recognized the address on the mailing was that of the San Bernardino shooters.
The county sheriff's department bomb squad was able to determine that the item "posed no threat," after inspecting the package at the facility, San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan tweeted. The item turned out to contain "clothing," he wrote.
Burguan said the package was shipped from a "reputable vendor," but authorities had isolated it out of safety.
A UPS driver had left the shipping facility to make deliveries, but later returned after realizing the address on a package was the Redlands, California, home of Syed Rizwan Farook and wife Tashfeed Malik, who fatally shot 14 people and injured 21 others Wednesday at a holiday party at San Bernardino's Inland Regional Center.
UPS temporarily suspended operations at its San Bernardino facility while the investigation took place, UPS spokesman Dan Cardillo said in a statement.
A UPS driver told NBC Los Angeles that the shooters' home received packages frequently — every day for the last three months.
Despite the terror that hit San Bernardino, a city of more than 213,000, Burguan said on TODAY that there are no other active threats that residents should be worried about.
"You cannot live your life in fear," he said, adding that "if you see something, say something, which I think people are doing right now."
