The FBI’s investigation of Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez has taken agents to an apartment complex for a raid at the home of a widowed woman and her six children, The Times Free Press reports.

Agents said they were acting on a lead about an associate of Abdulazeez’s.

The widow, Alexis Tubbs, said one of her sons knew Abdulazeez.

The FBI declined to elaborate on the raid but said a press conference is planned for noon today.

“We’ve been going all over this city talking to friends and associates of our shooter,” said Ed Reinhold, FBI special agent in charge, outside the Mountain Creek Apartments on Monday night. “In order to make this investigation completely done, we go around and talk to everyone we possibly can who may know or been associated with the shooter.”

The name of the family was not released.

The grieving wife of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent who was killed by a drunk driver in Arizona wrote a book about losing her husband, the Associated Press reports.

The book, “Crazy Courage: A Young Widow’s Survival Guide,” is a guide for widows of fallen officers.

“I heard myself sobbing uncontrollably, but only for a brief moment,” Samantha Gallagher wrote about hearing news of the death of her husband, Michael Gallagher. “It was a cry of hysteria, of helplessness. I remember hearing the sobs and it didn’t sound like me. It was like I was hearing someone else.”

Gallagher was 32 in September 2010 when he was driving on a reservation road for work. A drunken driver, Angela Mata, lost control of her car and killed Gallagher. She was sentenced to five years in prison last year, the AP wrote.
