Man, 22, arrested for ‘planning to shoot up a Church to support ISIS’. When is Obama going to realize that ISIS is on our homeland and stop down playing them?
A Michigan man is accused of being an ISIS supporter after he told an undercover FBI agent that he wanted to shoot up a church to show his support for the terrorist group.
Khalil Abu-Rayyan was first arrested on gun and drug charges last year, but now he has since been accused of attempting to commit terrorist related offenses by the FBI. He has not been formally charged with terrorism.
According to a sworn affidavit from the United States District Court of Michigan, the 22-year-old was allegedly involved in making terror threats on behalf of the terrorist group. The FBI began monitoring Abu-Rayyan starting in May 2015.
Authorities say that Abu-Rayyan made threats in monitored phone conversations and electronic communications with the undercover agent, as he was also under surveillance on social media.
He also was found to have made numerous comments on ISIS propaganda online, including videos of executions, as well as liking and re-tweeting ISIS related links, WJBK reported.
The chilling details about what Abu-Rayyan allegedly planned to do are detailed within the sworn affidavit.
While on social media he told an undercover agent that he ‘tried to shoot up a church one day. I don’t know the name of it but it’s close to my job.
‘One of the biggest ones in Detroit. I had it planned out. I brought a bunch of bullets. I practiced a lot with it.
‘I practiced reloading and unloading, but my dad searched my car one day and he found everything. He found the gun and the bullets and the mask I was going to wear.’
