PENSACOLA, Fla. — Investigators are tracing the movements of a Saudi military student before he killed three people Friday, one of whom has been identified by family, and wounded eight others in a shooting at a Florida naval base. The shooting also left the gunman, Ahmed Mohammed al-Shamrani, dead.
Details about the gunman, his past and his motive have been slow to emerge. The FBI’s Jacksonville branch said Saturday morning that the inquiry remains “active” and “very fluid.” The bureau has not determined whether to classify the case as terrorism, according to a U.S. official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation, but it is piecing together the gunman’s timeline and whereabouts in the United States in the days and weeks leading up to the shooting.
The article goes on to state the following:
al-Shamrani traveled between the United States and Saudi Arabia “during school breaks, the New York Times reports. “When he returned to the United States in February, friends and colleagues noticed that he had become more religious, said the person briefed on the investigation. It was not immediately clear what he did between February and this week, when he signed into his new training unit in Pensacola, but he had been living in the area.”
Many, including politicians, believe al-Shamrani’s attack at the base was a terrorist attack.
“In my judgment, based upon all of the evidence I have seen, the F.B.I. will open this as an international terrorism case,” said Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), a member of the Homeland Security Committee.
DML News App founder Dennis Michael Lynch said in a Facebook Live video Saturday morning (see below) that the shooting attack at the naval base in Pensacola, Florida is absolutely a terror attack.
