(Newser) – Enrique Marquez will indeed face charges. Federal prosecutors say gun charges are expected against Syed Farook's friend and former neighbor on Thursday, per the Washington Post; a press conference is scheduled for later in the day. Police allege Marquez purchased the two guns used in the San Bernardino shooting and gave them to Farook without filling out the necessary paperwork. FBI agents are also investigating whether Marquez bought the guns to be used in an attack he and Farook allegedly plotted but never carried out. President Obama is expected to meet with shooting victims and families in San Bernardino on Friday, per NBC News.
