Breaking News!!: Alexandria, VA: Rifle-wielding attacker opened fired on Republican lawmakers at a congressional baseball practice.

Rifle-wielding attacker opened fired on Republican lawmakers at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia on Wednesday, June 14th, 2017 wounding House GOP Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana and several others as congressmen and aides dove for cover.

The shooting occurred at around 7:00am ET during baseball practice for an annual bipartisan charity baseball game.

Republicans were practicing for the annual baseball game against Democrats that has been held since 1909.

Witnesses reported hearing at least 50 gunshots were fired.

Sen. Rand Paul describes the scene at the baseball practice to MSNBC where House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot.

Witnesses said the Republican lawmaker was standing at second base when he was hit in the left hip.

After dragging himself to safety and getting help from his colleagues amid the chaos, Scalise was transported to MedStar Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C.

Scalise underwent surgery and was in stable condition, his office said.

“Prior to entering surgery, the Whip was in good spirits and spoke to his wife by phone. He is grateful for the brave actions of U.S. Capitol Police, first responders, and colleagues.” the office for Scalise said in a statement.

The 51 year old Scalise is the No. 3 House Republican leader first elected to the House in 2008.

United States of America President Donald Trump spoke to the nation from the White House about the shooting.

“Everyone on that field is a public servant. Their sacrifice makes democracy possible,” said United States of America President Donald Trump.

United States of America President Donald Trump later said, “Congressman Scalise is a friend, and a very good friend, he’s a patriot and he’s a fighter. He will recover from this assault and Steve I want you to know that you have the prayers not only of the entire city behind you but of an entire nation and frankly the entire world. America is praying for you and America is praying for all of the victims of this terrible shooting.”

United States of America President Donald Trump is calling for unity, saying we are strongest when we work together for the common good.

“We may have our differences but we do well in times like these to remember that everyone who serves in our nation’s capital is here because above all they love our country. We can all agree that we are blessed to be Americans, that our children deserve to grow up in a nation of safety and peace, and that we are strongest when we are unified and when we work together for the common good,” said United States of America President Donald Trump.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said, “We are united in our shock, we are united in our anguish. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us. For all the noise and all the fury, we are one family… I ask each of you to join me to resolve to come together to lift each other up and to show the country, to show the world, that we are one House, the people’s House, united in our humanity. It is that humanity which will win the day and it always will.”

House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi said of Rep. Scalise, “For this person to take this action was so cowardly. It seems particularly sad that at a time when people want us to come together… that this assault would be made. But we cannot let that be a victory for the assailant or anyone who would think that way… We will use this occasion as one that brings us together and not separates us further.”

Texas Rep. Roger Williams, who coaches the GOP team, said that one of his aides, Zack Barth, was shot during the shooting, but is doing well and is expected to make a full recovery.

The assailant, prepared with a lot of ammo, fought a gun battle with authorities before the attacker was shot and later died.

Authorities are saying that this was an isolated incident and there is no additional threat.

Law enforcement and government officials identified the shooter as 66 year old James. T. Hodgkinson from Belleville, Illinois.

The law enforcement officials said the shooter was heard asking, “Are these the Republicans or the Democrats?”, raising questions about the gunman’s political motivations, but law enforcement officials at the scene said that piece of the investigation remains unclear.

According to public records, James. T. Hodgkinson, a licensed home inspector who ran his business out of his Illinois home, has a history of arrests and was charged in 2006 with assaulting a woman.

At the time, authorities recovered a pocket knife, hair they say was pulled out of the woman’s head, and a 12-gauge shotgun at the scene of the alleged attack.

According to public records, the charges, domestic battery, aggravated discharge of a firearm, and battery, were later dismissed.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said that 2 firearms, a rifle and a handgun, were recovered from the scene.

** ZachNews sends our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of the victims of the shooting and hoping that everybody will recover soon. **

Breaking News!!: Riverside, CA: Enrique Marquez has been criminally charged in connection with the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California.

ZachNews -- Breaking News!!

Breaking News!!: Riverside, CA: Enrique Marquez has been criminally charged in connection with the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California.

A longtime friend and former neighbor of attacker Syed Rizwan Farook was criminal charged on Thursday, December 17th, 2015 with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists, defrauding immigration authorities, and the unlawful purchase of 2 assault rifles which were used in the terrorist attack at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California on Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015.

CWdcGxiUYAA7WO0

** Picture from NBC News: **

According to the United States Department of Justice, 24 year old Enrique Marquez Jr. of Riverside, California, was charged with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists based upon his role in terrorist plotting with Syed Rizwan Farook in 2011 and 2012, the unlawful purchase of the 2 assault rifles used in the deadly shooting 2 weeks ago and defrauding immigration authorities by entering into a sham marriage with a member of Syed Rizwan Farook’s family.

Enrique Marquez was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) and did enter a plead at his initial court appearance this afternoon inside a federal court in Riverside, California.

Enrique Marquez was charged in a 3 count criminal complaint filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California with conspiring to provide material support—including personnel, firearms and explosives—to terrorists in 2011 and 2012; with making a false statement in connection with acquisition of firearms; and immigration fraud.

“Enrique Marquez Jr. is charged with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists for his role in plotting attacks on American soil in 2011 and 2012, attacks which were, fortunately, not carried out. He is also charged with a firearms violation for making a straw purchase of weapons for Syed Rizwan Farook—weapons that were eventually used to carry out the recent terrorist attack in San Bernardino. We will continue to investigate, and seek to hold accountable anybody found to be involved in, that heinous act. I would like to extend my gratitude to all the members of law enforcement involved in this ongoing investigation,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin.

“Mr. Marquez conspired with Mr. Farook to commit vicious attacks, as set forth in today’s charges. Even though these plans were not carried out, Mr. Marquez’s criminal conduct deeply affected San Bernardino County, Southern California, and the entire United States when the guns purchased by Marquez were used to kill 14 innocent people and wound many others. While there currently is no evidence that Mr. Marquez participated in the Dec. 2, 2015 attack or had advance knowledge of it, his prior purchase of the firearms and ongoing failure to warn authorities about Farook’s intent to commit mass murder had fatal consequences. Today’s charges are the result of exceptional work by many prosecutors and law enforcement agencies, and I thank them for their tremendous effort so far in this case,” said U.S. Attorney Eileen M. Decker of the Central District of California.

“Many dedicated law enforcement personnel have worked around the clock and side by side with their Joint Terrorism Task Force partners to gather evidence and build a solid terrorism case against Mr. Marquez over the past two weeks. As we will continue to investigate the facts surrounding the terrible shooting in San Bernardino, we will leave no stone unturned in an effort to deliver answers and justice to the murdered victims and the families they left behind,” said Assistant Director in Charge David Bowdich of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.)’s Field Office in Los Angeles, California.

According to the United States Department of Justice, the affidavit in support of the complaint provides details into parts of the exhaustive and ongoing investigation into the attack on Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015, that killed 14 people at the Inland Regional Center (I.R.C.). The complaint does not allege that Marquez was involved in the terrorist attack at the Inland Regional Center (I.R.C.).

The complaint does allege that Marquez purchased the AR-15-style rifles that were ultimately used in the shooting, that Marquez previously purchased explosive material that was ultimately used to construct a pipe bomb that was found at the Inland Regional Center (I.R.C.) and that in 2011 and 2012, Marquez and Syed Rizwan Farook planned terrorist attacks in the Inland Empire, California, that ultimately were not carried out.

According to the affidavit, in approximately 2005, Enrique Marquez moved to Riverside, where he met Syed Rizwan Farook, who was his next-door neighbor. After their initial meeting, Syed Rizwan Farook introduced Marquez to Islam, and, in 2007, Enrique Marquez converted to Islam.

Syed Rizwan Farook later introduced Marquez to radical Islamic ideology, which included expressing disdain towards Muslims in the U.S. military who killed other Muslims, as well as discussing the extremist views of the now-deceased imam and Islamic lecturer Anwar al-Aulaqi.

Over the next few years, Syed Rizwan Farook provided Enrique Marquez with radical Islamic materials, and by 2011, Marquez spent most of his time at Syed Rizwan Farook’s residence listening to lectures and watching videos involving radical Islamic content. Those materials included Inspire Magazine, the official publication of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), and videos produced by Al-Shabaab. In August 2011, Syed Rizwan Farook informed Marquez of his interest in joining AQAP in Yemen.

In late 2011, according to the affidavit, Enrique Marquez and Syed Rizwan Farook started planning to use firearms and explosives to carry out terrorist acts—attacks that Marquez told investigators were designed to maximize the number of casualties that could be inflicted.

The affidavit recounts a recent interview with Enrique Marquez in which he admitted making plans with Syed Rizwan Farook to attack the library or cafeteria at Riverside Community College (R.C.C.), where both men had been students. The plan allegedly was to throw pipe bombs into the cafeteria area from an elevated position on the second floor, and then to shoot people as they fled.

Marquez and Syed Rizwan Farook also planned to attack eastbound lanes of State Route 91 (S.R.91) during afternoon rush hour, the affidavit states. Enrique Marquez told investigators that they chose a particular section of the freeway because there were no exits, which would increase the number of targets in the eastbound lanes.

The plan was for Syed Rizwan Farook to throw pipe bombs on to the freeway, which they believed would disable vehicles and stop traffic. Syed Rizwan Farook allegedly planned to then move among stopped vehicles, shooting into them, while Enrique Marquez shot into vehicles from a position on a nearby hillside. Enrique Marquez allegedly said that he would watch for law enforcement and emergency vehicles, and his priority was to shoot law enforcement before shooting life-saving personnel.

According to the affidavit, Enrique Marquez and Syed Rizwan Farook took steps to carry out their plans by purchasing firearms, ammunition and other tactical gear, as well as going to local firing ranges. In late 2011 and 2012, Enrique Marquez allegedly purchased two firearms and portrayed himself as the actual purchaser of the rifles, when he was in fact buying the weapons for Syed Rizwan Farook as part of the plan to attack RCC and SR-91.

According to the affidavit, Enrique Marquez told investigators that he agreed to purchase the weapons because “his appearance was Caucasian, while Syed Rizwan Farook looked Middle-Eastern.” Investigators have determined that on Nov. 14, 2011, Marquez purchased a Smith and Wesson M&P-15 Sport rifle for Farook. On Feb. 22, 2012, Enrique Marquez purchased a DPMS model A-15 rifle, according to records in the affidavit, which states that each rifle cost approximately $750.

Around the same time as he purchased the firearms for Syed Rizwan Farook, Enrique Marquez purchased explosives—specifically smokeless powder—“in furtherance of his and Farook’s plans to create bombs and commit mass killings,” according to the affidavit.

In the first half of 2012, Enrique Marquez and Syed Rizwan Farook allegedly continued to prepare for terrorist attacks by going to firing ranges to practice shooting guns and further discussing extremist ideologies. After 2012, Enrique Marquez allegedly distanced himself from Syed Rizwan Farook and ceased plotting with Syed Rizwan Farook for a variety of reasons, including the arrest of Ralph Deleon and others on material support for terrorism charges in November 2012.

The complaint affidavit alleges the following timeline of events based on the investigation to date. On the morning of Dec. 2, 2015, shortly after 9:00 a.m., Farook went to an event at the IRC and placed an item on a table. Following the shooting at the IRC, investigators discovered a remote-controlled improvised explosive device (IED) on a table—a pipe bomb constructed out of three galvanized steel pipes and smokeless powder that was armed and ready to detonate.

A subsequent search of Syed Rizwan Farook’s residence led to the discovery of smokeless powder that Marquez allegedly admitted purchasing in 2011 while planning terrorist acts with Syed Rizwan Farook.

In addition, a remote control was found in the sports utility vehicle after Farook and his wife Tafsheen Malik were killed. In his interview with investigators, Marquez allegedly stated that the smokeless powder was purchased to be used in the construction of an “explosive device.” Enrique Marquez described his familiarity with the use of remote-control devices to detonate IEDs, and said he and Syed Rizwan Farook reviewed instructions on how to make IEDs that were in Inspire Magazine, according to the affidavit.

According to the affidavit, subsequent investigation determined that on the morning of the shooting, a Facebook account associated with Malik searched for materials related to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Shortly after the shooting, a post on a Facebook page associated with Malik said, “We pledge allegiance to Khalifa bu bkr al bhaghdadi al quraishi” which the affidavit alleges is a reference to the leader of ISIL.

After Farook and Malik were killed in the shooting that ended the pursuit, authorities recovered four firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition. Among the firearms recovered were the two rifles that Marquez allegedly purchased for Syed Rizwan Farook several years earlier. Forensic testing has confirmed that the two rifles were used in the attack on the IRC.

Four days after the attack on the IRC, Marquez met with law enforcement officials investigating the incident. Marquez admitted a series of statements that are detailed in the affidavit.

In addition to the charges related to the straw purchase of the rifles and the plans to commit terrorist attacks, Marquez is charged with defrauding United States Citizenship and Immigration Services in relation to a sham marriage with a member of Syed Rizwan Farook’s extended family so that she could obtain legal status in the United States. In return for his participation in the fraud, she paid Marquez $200 per month.

The charge of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

The charge of making a false statement in connection with the acquisition of firearms carries a statutory maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

The charge of immigration fraud carries a statutory maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

If convicted, any potential sentence will be determined by the court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal history, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.

A criminal complaint is not a finding of guilt. An individual charged by complaint is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

This investigation is being conducted by several partner agencies that are part of the Los Angeles FBI’s Inland Empire Joint Terrorism Task Force.

Several agencies are providing considerable assistance to the investigation, including the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office and detectives with the Chino Police Department; the Redlands Police Department; and the Corona Police Department.

In addition, investigators have collaborated with sister task forces in the region and throughout the country, as well as with the intelligence community; foreign law enforcement partners; and various FBI Legal Attachés located overseas.

The case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Central District of California and the National Security Division’s Counterterrorism Section.

– Enrique Marquez: Yeah. And then he…Why did he have to do it?

– 911 operator: What was the guy’s name that had your gun?

– Enrique Marquez: It’s Syed Farook.

Later that day, Enrique Marquez checked into the Harbor–UCLA Medical Center’s Emergency Room.

According to the affidavit, Enrique Marquez told medical personnel that his mother called him earlier telling him the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms had been to her house asking about him.

Enrique Marquez also told medical personnel that he did not normally drink, but had consumed 9 bottles of beer prior to his arrival because he was upset.

Enrique Marquez was then taken to the psychiatric ward and placed on an involuntary hold.
