RIVERSIDE, CA (AP) - In the hours after the San Bernardino massacre, the man who bought the assault rifles used in the attack called 911 to report he'd given a gun to suspect Syed Farook for "storage."
    
According to court records released Thursday, an apparently distraught Enrique Marquez was also considering suicide.
    
The dispatcher asks, "Why do you feel like you want to kill yourself?"
    
Marquez answers that his neighbor did the shooting.
    
The dispatcher then asks, "He used your gun?"
    
Marquez answers, "Yes. Oh my God."
    
The 24-year-old Marquez was charged Thursday with terrorism-related counts including illegally purchasing two assault rifles used by Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, to kill 14 people on Dec. 2. The shooters died in a gunbattle with police.
    
Federal prosecutors say Enrique Marquez was also charged with conspiring with Syed Rizwan Farook to commit terrorism in 2011 and 2012.
    
He faces an additional immigration charge for a sham marriage with a member of Farook's family.
    
Marquez was a neighbor and longtime friend of Farook's, and the two later became related through marriage. Marquez and Farook's brother are married to sisters from Russia.
