The infamous masked ISIS executioner known as “Jihadi John” was targeted by a U.S. drone strike in Syrian on Thursday, but his fate was unknown this morning, USA Today reports. 

The militant, a British resident whose real name is Mohamed Emwazi, is believed to have beheaded several Western hostages in Syria.

The Pentagon was trying to determine whether Emwazi was in fact killed.

“U.S. forces conducted an airstrike . . . targeting Mohamed Emwazi, also known as “Jihadi John,” Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook said on Thursday.

“We are assessing the results of tonight’s operation and will provide additional information as and where appropriate,” Cook said.

The 26-year-old who gradated from the University of Westminster in London began appearing in beheading videos in August 2014.

The deadly cocktails administered during executions are about to come under fire after a botched lethal injection involving Oklahoma inmate Clayton Lockett on Tuesday.

Newsweek reports that a doctor stopped administering the lethal injection about 13 minutes into the procedure after Locket lifted his head and began mumbling.

About 40 minutes after the lethal cocktail was administered, Lockett died of an apparent massive heart attack.

“We believe that a vein was blown and the drugs weren’t working as they were designed to. The director ordered a halt to the execution,” Massie said.

Authorities are bracing for serious questions about the viability and humaneness of lethal injections.

A Florida man killed while being questioned by federal authorities about his ties to Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was shot several times, including once to the back of the head, the suspect’s father said, the USA Today reports.

The father of 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev, both of whom are Chechens, showed photos of his son’s body that he says proves that federal authorities killed his son “execution-style.”

“They tortured a man for eight hours with no attorney, no witnesses, nobody. We can only guess what was going on there, until there is an official investigation,” the father, Abdul-Baki Todashev, told reporters in Moscow.

The FBI has been mum about the shooting because it’s an ongoing investigation, but at least one report suggests the 27-year-old wielded a knife and admitted to playing a role in a triple murder.
