The FBI is investigating two Los Angeles-based gang members who are accused of fighting alongside terrorists in Syria, CBS LA reports.

A video shows two unidentified men shooting AK-47s while apparently giving shootouts to their gangs.

“Look homie, check this out,” one man said.

The men are known as “Creeper” from G’d Up-13 and “Wino” from the Westside Armenian Power.

They were fighting alongside pro-Hizbullah and pro-Assad forces.

“The Joint Terrorism Taskforce is aware of the video and is investigating to determine any potential threats to Americans or U.S. interest,” FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said.

U.S. Probes Potential for Domestic Terrorism in Light of Military Involvement in Syria

As the prospect of U.S. military involvement in Syria raises, the House Homeland Security Committee plans to meet Tuesday to discuss the potential domestic security implications, The Star-Ledger reports.

Authorities are worried that a military strike would inflame anti-American sentiments and prompt a terrorist attack.

“In light of the atrocities witnessed in Syria, today our nation faces difficult choices,” the committee chairman, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Tex.), said in a statement. “We must determine how the civil war in Syria affects our national security interests, and the ramifications of our action or inaction in the Syrian conflict. Ultimately, without an international coalition or a clear military objective, sending ‘warning’ shots may risk entangling the U.S. in a war where a rogue regime is fighting a rebel force infiltrated by extremists who count the U.S. as their enemy. Such an action will not secure Assad’s deadly chemical weapons, which could end up in the hands of al Qaeda.”

President Obama has throated to use military force after the Syrian government was accused last month of killing more than 1,400 people win a chemical weapons attack.
