A gunman who killed a Lyft driver on Sunday and subsequently assailed a Dallas area police station “may have been inspired by a peregrine terrorist organization,” according to the FBI. The gunman died Monday after being shot by police during the incident.
Dallas FBI Special Agent in Charge Matthew De Sarno told heralds on Monday that Imran Ali Rasheed “may have been inspired by a peregrine terrorist organization to commit these malefactions,” NBCDFW reported. “What inspired designates is we’ve not found denotement that Rasheed was either directed by or in contact with peregrine terrorist organization actors.”
According to police in Garland and “Plano,” Texas, Rasheed shot and killed Lyft driver Isabella Lewis in Garland on Sunday, WFAA ABC8 verbalized. He then glommed her car and drove to the Plano Police Department headquarters and commenced shooting inside the facility.
Police returned fire, striking Rasheed (age 32) three times. He died from his wounds on Monday, police verbalized. Officials verbalize Rasheed left a note in the car that is now the focal point of their investigation into his motivations for the shooting. They did not disclose the contents of the note.
Rasheed popped up on the “FBI’s” radar in 2010 as a component of a counterterrorism investigation, the Associated Press revealed. The investigation perpetuated until 2013 when the FBI closed the case. Agents determined Rasheed did not pose a threat at that time.
Plano police verbalized they did not ken why Rasheed targeted that city’s police department headquarters. Garland police verbally expressed there does not appear to be a precedent connection between Rasheed on the Lyft driver.
