A Syrian refugee who killed Fargo, North Dakota, Police Officer Jake Wallin, 23 years old, and critically injured two other officers and a bystander this month had plotted a mass shooting in the city’s downtown, law enforcement officials revealed.

Officer Zach Robinson, who had responded with the other officers to Koswick’s crash, shot and killed Barakat {snip}

North Dakota Attorney General Drew Wrigley now reveals how Barakat first arrived in the United States {snip}

Barakat arrived in the U.S. from Syria in 2012 as part of former President Barack Obama’s massive wave of Syrian refugees {snip}

According to Wrigley, Barakat likely planned a mass shooting event in downtown Fargo, as a forensic search of his computer showed he last searched for “mass casualty events” and an article about thousands attending the city’s downtown street fair.
