One Garland Shooting Suspect Identified
Elton Simpson has been identified as one of the gunman in Sunday’s Garland, Texas shooting.
Officials believe Simpson is the person who sent out several Twitter messages prior to the attack on Sunday, in the last one using the hashtag #TexasAttack about half an hour before the shooting…
Simpson was well known to the FBI. Five years ago he was convicted for lying to federal agents about his plans to travel to Africa, but a judge ruled the government did not adequately prove he was going to join a terror group there.
As for the second suspect, the FBI is combing through files on all of Simpson’s known associates in Phoenix and elsewhere, but so far there has been no word on the accomplice’s identity.
