The man who bought and later provided two of the rifles used in the 2015 San Bernardino shooting, was sentenced Friday to 20 years in prison.

Enrique Marquez Jr. pleaded guilty in 2017 to one count each of providing material support to terrorists, and making false statements in the acquisition of firearms.

Marquez was a close associate of Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, the two shooters who opened fire at an office party at the Inland Regional Center in 2015, killing 14 people.

Farook and his wife were killed in a shootout with police.
