The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives are involved in the investigation. It’s probably nothing.

The first shooting, near the State Capitol building, occurred at 4:10 p.m. when El-Mofty allegedly opened fire on a Capitol Police officer in his cruiser. The bullets hit the vehicle several times, but missed the officer in it.
The second shooting was approximately half an hour later, one female police officer was hit once. She is in good condition in the hospital.
Capitol Police pursued the suspect into a residential neighborhood. Police allege that El-Mofty then pulled out two handguns and fired at the officers. None of the officers were struck, but officers returned fire and killed the suspect.
Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico held a press conference identifying the suspect and seeking assistance from the public.

This dude was targeting cops.
He had just returned from a trip to the Middle East.
He went into a residential area to flee from police.
Gee, if we only knew of a group of people willing to use innocents as human shields…
How much do you want to bet that this is labeled a ‘mentally unstable individual’ and his religion is never mentioned?
If the ABC headline is any indicator, then we know that’s exactly what the wussified Media (D) will do:
They won’t discuss ideology at all because #NotAllMuslims.
Funny though — so many of these terror attacks actually are Muslims. (Like just about all of them.)
What a weird coincidence…

ISIS. This radical terrorist organization is a virus… a worldwide plague. These a$$holes are willing to kill their own women and children to annihilate who they call “infidels.”
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. F**K ISIS.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
