A 25-year-old Akron, Ohio man with ties to ISIS was arrested Thursday and charged with soliciting the killings of U.S. service members.
Prosecutors say Terrence McNeil posted the names and addresses of dozens of service members on the internet and asked online followers to kill them, CBS reports. McNeil included an image of a handgun and a knife with text that reads “kill them wherever you find them,” according to the network.
“ISIL and its followers continue to use social media in an attempt to incite violence around the world, including in the United States,”Assistant Attorney General Carlin said in a statement to CBS. “The National Security Division’s highest priority is counterterrorism and we will use all of our tools to disrupt threats and acts of violence against our military members and their families.”
