ISIS Supporter Who Shot Philadelphia Cop May Belong to Larger Radical Group
By Steve Neavling
The FBI is investigating whether an ISIS supporter who shot a Philadelphia cop was part of a radical group that may still pose a threat, The Washington Post reports.
The investigation follows a tip from a citizen who said the suspect, Edward Archer, was part of a larger group.
Archer ran up to a parole car Thursday and shot Officer Jesse Hartnett several times. The officer is in stable condition but was able to shoot and injure the attacker.
“He stated that he pledges his allegiance to Islamic State, he follows Allah and that is the reason he was called upon to do this,” Capt. James Clark said at Friday’s news conference. “He kept on echoing those sentiments and he wouldn’t give us anything more than that.”
