In graphic video posted online, a Southern California man talks to himself inside a hotel room and takes aim using a cache of weapons at pedestrians on the street below. The 30-year-old was arrested after police received an anonymous tip from someone in the man’s online gaming community.
A big focus on the investigation is on Alshamrani’s travel. Law enforcement officials say after he arrived in the U.S. for training, he returned to Saudi Arabia then came back to Florida. His friends say he came back much stricter about his beliefs, leading authorities to question if he had been radicalized abroad.
