Authorities have arrested Mark Steven Domingo a man accused of plotting ‘mass casualty’ terrorist attack in California.
U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California Nick Hanna: “This investigation successfully disrupted a very real threat posed by a trained combat soldier who repeatedly stated he wanted to cause the maximum number of casualties.”
Domingo also considered various other targets like police cars, churches and a National Guard Armory that were possible target locations, the indictment says.
Mark Steven Domingo, 26, faces one count of providing and attempting to provide material support to terrorists, according to a federal complaint unsealed Monday.
Prosecutors say Domingo made online posts that “expressed support for violent jihad, a desire to seek retribution for attacks against Muslims, and a willingness to become a martyr.” Authorities added that after Domingo considered attacks targeting “Jews, churches and police officers,” he decided to detonate an improvised explosive device at the Long Beach rally, which police said was called off Sunday morning.
“This investigation successfully disrupted a very real threat posed by a trained combat soldier who repeatedly stated he wanted to cause the maximum number of casualties,” said United States Attorney Nick Hanna in a statement. “Protecting Americans from terror attacks is the number one priority of the Justice Department, and anyone who plots to use a weapon of mass destruction will be held to account.” More
