“The case involves the Joint Terrorism Task Force and prosecutors from the national security unit of the U.S. Attorney’s Office.” Nonetheless, stand by for outrage and cries of victimhood from Islamic groups, regardless of what the evidence against this imam contains. “Leader of Detroit mosque killed, 11 charged in FBI raids,” by Paul Egan for the Detroit News, October 28:
Detroit — The leader of a Detroit mosque was shot and killed Wednesday during a series of FBI raids that resulted in charges against 11 and the death of an FBI dog.
At least six of those charged were in federal custody late Wednesday afternoon.
The case involves the Joint Terrorism Task Force and prosecutors from the national security unit of the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
A complaint filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Detroit names Luqman Ameen Abullah, imam of the Masjid Al-Haqq mosque in Detroit, as “a highly placed leader of a nationwide radical fundamentalist Sunni group.” He was killed in the raid, according to a joint statement by federal officials.
More than three people were arrested on charges including conspiracy to commit federal crimes, receipt of stolen goods, providing firearms to felons and changing vehicle identification numbers, said Special Agent Sandra Berchtold, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Detroit. Berchtold also confirmed that an FBI dog was shot and killed in one of the raids.
The operation involved locations in Detroit and Dearborn.
Yellow police tape was put up outside a trucking and warehouse firm on Miller Road just north of Michigan Avenue, and a Dearborn police car was parked outside.
Another site involved in the raids was on Tireman near Interstate 96 on the city’s west side.
