Los Angeles: Residents of Redlands, a small town east of Los Angeles, tried to come to terms Monday with their newfound fame as the site of one of the deadliest mass shootings in America.

The street where the husband and wife behind the carnage that left 14 people dead and 21 others injured lived has returned to a semblance of normalcy. 

But the faces of residents betray the horror and shock left in the aftermath of the December 2 attack.

"My daughter wants to move out, she is terrified," said one woman who lives two doors down from the townhouse that Syed Farook and his Pakistani wife Tashfeen Malik rented.

The woman, who did not want to give her name and spoke in Spanish, said she had never had contact with the couple who died in a shootout with police following the carnage that President Barack Obama branded an "act of terrorism."

"People don`t mix here. They go into their homes through their garage and also go out that way," she said.
