Murder in LR

The New York Times is covering today the shooting of soldiers outside a recruiting center by a man who told police of anti-war and religious motives. (The Army released the photo of Pvt. William Long of Conway, who was killed in the shooting.)

Mr. Muhammad has told investigators that he acted alone, the Little Rock police said. But his travels to Yemen and possibly Somalia raise questions about whether he met with any of the militant Islamic groups that are active in both countries.

The article also notes that the suspect had recently filed a petition to change his name to Abdulhakim Bledsoe, which would give him back his birth name. Police have identified him as Abdulhakim Muhammad.
