As investigators continue to unravel the story of Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, a photo has surfaced of the San Bernardino shooters setting foot onto U.S. soil for the first time together.

The photo, obtained by ABC News, shows their first moments in the United States on July 27, 2014, when they entered Chicago’s O’Hare Airport and passed through customs.

Farook, a U.S. citizen, was returning to the country from Saudi Arabia with his new fiancee.

Malik stares into the camera with a black veil pulled back from her face, while Farook can be seen standing behind her and looking on. The photo is the most recent image that has been released of the couple.

On Friday, investigators said they were investigating the attack as an act of terrorism, which President Obama reiterated in a primetime address to the nation on Sunday night.

Malik pledged allegiance to the Islamic State during the attack. In now-deleted Facebook posts, she expressed her admiration for ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi using an alias, a Facebook spokesperson confirmed to Mashable.

Malik and Farook met online in 2013, and they got engaged in Saudi Arabia before traveling back to the U.S. together in July 2014.
