New York Police Department investigators are looking into photographs of a possible ISIS supporter taking selfies outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art and in view of One World Trade Center.
The troubling images, that began making the rounds on social media on Saturday, shows an individual posing while wearing an ISIS-branded scarf over his face.
The photos includes the caption, “We are in your own Backyard,” said Eric Feinberg, the co-founder of GIPEC, a cyber-intelligence firm that keeps track of terrorism-related hashtags.
“The NYPD is aware of the photograph. As with all terror related threats, the NYPD is looking into the incident. At this time there are no credible threats related to New York City,” an NYPD spokesman told the New York Daily News Tuesday.
