MI officials evacuate Flint airport after police officer gets 'stabbed' in neck

MI officials evacuate Flint airport after police officer gets 'stabbed' in neck”

A police officer was stabbed Wednesday at the Flint, Mich., global airport, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation says it is investigating the incident as a possible act of terrorism because of statements the suspect reportedly made before attacking the officer.

Court documents claim the attacker shouted Allahu Akbar before the stabbing and then shouted Allah multiple times.

A complaint was filed against Ftouhi Wednesday for "violence at an global airport", but officials noted that there could be more charges in the future.

The 49-year-old has been remanded in prison ahead of a hearing scheduled to take place next week.

Acting U.S. Attorney of the Eastern District of Michigan Daniel Lemisch also attended the news conference and said more charges are likely.

Ftouhi is a dual citizen of Canada and Tunisia who has lived in the same Montreal neighborhood for about ten years, with a wife and three children.

Reporters will be briefed on police Lt. Jeff Neville by members of Hurley Medical Center's Level 1 Trauma Team Friday morning at the hospital.

Neville underwent hours of surgery at Hurley.

CNN reported on Thursday that Ftouhi attempted to purchase a gun after arriving in the Flint area but was denied because he is not a us citizen. "He continued to make good progress", Scholten said.

Gelios declined to provide details on where Ftouhi attempted to buy the gun or what type of gun he tried to purchase.

"I think it's sufficient to say he has a hatred for the United States and a variety of other things, which in part motivated him toward coming to the airport to conduct this act of violence", Special Agent in Charge Gelios said of his motivations.

He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Stephanie Dawkins Davis Wednesday for his initial appearance wearing a mask because he had spat on a law enforcement officer, officials said.

Police investigators walk into the residence of Amor Ftouhi, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, June 21, 2017.

The FBI said the suspect was in custody and was being questioned. They believe Ftouhi acted alone.

He declined to go into why Flint was chosen for the attack, but said Ftouhi "did want to identify an global airport and Flint, by name alone, is known as an worldwide airport". Officials declined to say what was found.
