Officers pulled up in a dark gray Dodge Challenger car at the address, in Rodeo, California, at approximately 3.15pm local time Tuesday.
The home is currently thought to be occupied by Zahi Salman, 50, and one of her daughters – both of whom were visible through the open door.
Three FBI agents went inside the house. Two female agents were the first to approach the home, shout FBI, and enter to and speak to the occupants. They left after an hour and a half without comment.
The arrival of the FBI in California is the latest twist in a dramatic day of developments, which include the revelation that Salman, 30, knew about her husband’s plans but did not turn him in.
