MSNBC and CNN aired the footage live as they searched the apartment where Syed Rizwan Farook, a 28-year-old US citizen, and Tashfeen Malik, his 27-year-old wife, had lived.

The couple carried out an attack in San Bernardino earlier this week at the Inland Regional Center, killing 14 people and wounding at least 21 others. They died in a shootout with police late Wednesday.

MSNBC showed on air a driver's license, Social Security card, and other identification documents found in the apartment, among other items.

Los Angeles Times reporter Kate Mather described the apartment as "sparsely furnished" with a "baby crib, toys, and boxes of diapers scattered around."

She also tweeted this photo:

CNN's Anderson Cooper said that police had cleared the apartment before media were invited in by the landlord. But the landlord apparently told CBS News that he didn't allow media into the apartment and said they "rushed" in.

The network's own law enforcement analyst, Harry Houck, said he was "shaking" watching reporters go through the couple's apartment.

"I'm having chills down my spine with what I'm seeing here," he said. "This apartment clearly is full of evidence."

Another CNN law enforcement analyst, Cedric Alexander, described the scene as "really hard to watch."

A San Bernardino sheriff's deputy told Los Angeles Times reporter Joe Serna that federal authorities "told us it's still an active investigation" and said he didn't know why people were in the couple's apartment.

FBI spokeswoman Lourdes Arocho told Business Insider that "our search is over at that location" and that more questions would be answered at a forthcoming press conference.

Here's a look at the scrum of reporters in and outside of the apartment:
