Terror targets UPDATE

Posted By on Wed, Jun 3, 2009 at 9:09 AM

News partner Fox 16 reports: The FBI believes the LR terror shooting suspect had a list of many other possible targets.

If he was acting alone, he was acting alone with a great deal of purpose and focus.

UPDATE: Following is FBI's guarded statement on its followup of other places around the country that the suspect possibly had compiled as targets.

Little Rock Special Agent in Charge Thomas J. Browne issued the following statement:

“There is an active investigation by the FBI and local authorities following the shooting at the military recruiting center in Little Rock. Given that the charged subject in this case, Carlos Bledsoe, aka Abdulhakim Muhammed, conducted Internet searches related to different locations in several U.S. cities, the FBI and DHS provided an advisory message to our law enforcement partners on the situation. Out of an abundance of caution, the FBI contacted the appropriate individuals at those locations researched by Bledsoe. This message was intended for law enforcement, not the public; no further information will be released to the media at this time.”
