The ISIS-supporting son of a Boston Police captain is accused of threatening to use pressure-cooker bombs and guns to attack an unidentified university, Boston.com reports. 

Alexander Ciccolo, 23, was arrested on weapons charges on July 4. He is the son of the Boston Police Capt. Robert Ciccolo, police said.

Adams is accused of getting four firearms from an FBI witness.

“What I am gonna do is prepare fire bombs. I’ll do that today. T[hey] are cheap and effective,” Ciccolo said in a July 2 instant message to the witness, according to the FBI. “You get the rifles. I’ll get the powder.”

The complaint also says that Ciccolo bought a pressure cooker on July 3.

Other weapons were found when authorities searched his home.

Following the arrest, Ciccolo is accused of “forcefully” stabbing a nurse in the head, “causing a bloody gash and breaking the pen in half,” Boston.com wrote.

One FBI agent and one BPD officer fired, FBI Special Agent in Charge Vincent B. Lisi said.
