A Florida man has been charged with trying to get the Islamic State to target two college deans in terrorist attacks.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami announced the arrest Monday of 23-year-old Salman Rashid. He’s been charged with soliciting another person to commit a crime of violence.

The FBI began investigating Rashid in April 2018 following violent social media posts. Investigators says Rashid solicited a confidential human source to contact members of ISIS this past May.
