Homeland Security Says Attacks on PA Police a Terror Attack

December 25, 2017  | 

The Department of Homeland Security is calling a series of shootings targeting law enforcement in Harrisburg, PA, a "terror attack."

Authorities said Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty, 51, was shot and killed by police Friday after he fired several times at law enforcement officers throughout the city, wounding one, CNN reports.

Tyler Houlton, acting DHS press secretary, referred to the incident as a terror attack in a statement released Saturday. He said the incident highlights the "Trump administration's concerns with extended family chain migration."

El-Mofty was a naturalized US citizen who came to the country on a "family-based immigrant visa," Houlton said.

Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico's office issued a statement saying authorities were seeking any information on El-Mofty, who, according to the statement , "has spent time in both Dauphin and Cumberland counties and recently was in the Middle East."
