FBI Arrests Man Planning ISIS-Inspired Attack On Detroit Church

posted on February 9, 2016

The FBI has stopped another planned lone-wolf terror attack on U.S. soil, this time in Detroit. 

According to the complaint, 21-year-old Khalil Abu-Rayyan targeted an unnamed church because, “It’s easy, and a lot of people go there. Plus people are not allowed to carry guns in church. Plus it would make the news. Everybody would’ve heard. Honestly I regret not doing it. If I can’t do jihad at the Middle East, I would do my jihad over here.” 

The FBI had been watching Abu-Rayyan online since May, and arrested him when his father “found the gun and the bullets and the mask I was going to wear.” Abu-Rayyan tweeted support for ISIS and told an undercover FBI agent in an online conversation that he had chosen a 6,000-member church only a half mile from his work. 

Last week, the FBI foiled a similar attack planned in Milwaukee.
