A man believed to be an Islamist extremist allegedly shot out the windows of Alabama City businesses to lure officers to the area so he could ambush them, reports the Gadsden Times.

Luis Ibarra-Hernandez, 21, has been charged with attempted murder and apparently told Gadsden (Ala.) Police Department officers he needed to do something extreme to draw attention to Islam and himself such as shooting officers.

No officers were hurt in the shootout, and Ibarra-Hernandez eventually surrendered. Only one deputy returned fire.
