One Dead, One Wounded During Jihad at Army Recruiting Station in Little Rock


By: Jim Kouri, CPP

A suspected “Jihadist” killed one US Army recruiter and wounded another during a morning attack in Little Rock, Arkansas yesterday.

According to the New York City Police Department’s Intelligence Division, the suspect, a black male, drove his SUV by the Army/Navy Recruitment Center located at the Ashley Area Square Shopping and opened fire on two recruiters standing outside of the military recruitment offices.

Emergency Medical Responders pronounced one of the recruiters DOA (dead on arrival), while the other recruiter was rushed to the hospital where he is in critical, but stable, condition.

Following the drive-by shooting, bloodshed and the subsequent pursuit, local police officers captured the suspect near the Interstate (I-30/I -630) highway interchange.

After taking the suspect into custody, police discovered a SKS rifle, a .22 caliber handgun, ammunition, and a “suspicious” package, according to the NYPD Intelligence Division’s William O’Regan, a research specialist.

Police said that the suspect surrendered without incident and that he used language “indicating his association with “Jihad.” He also indicated the possible existence of explosives. The Little Rock police officers at the scene brought in their department’s Hazmat/Bomb Squad, who retrieved the suspicious parcel for analysis.

Little Rock police reported there were no other suspects involved in the deadly attack.

According to NYPD Intelligence, military installations continue to be the target of anti-military groups and individuals. Recruiting stations, National Guard armories, and Reserve Centers have no armed guards which makes them vulnerable targets.

New York City military facilities have been targeted in the past—i.e. the March 6, 2008 bombing of the Times Square Recruiting Station.

Police identified the alleged attacker as Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, 23, an Islamic convert. He is being charged with first-degree murder as well as 15 counts of perpetrating terrorism.

The investigation into this latest attack is being characterized as ongoing by police.
