The man captured and jailed for killing 10 Americans at a store in Boulder, Colorado this week was on the FBI’s radar and was linked to another person that FBI agents were investigating.
“The suspect was known to the FBI because he was connected to another person under investigation, according to officials,” The NYT says. “Court documents reveal he was born in 1999, in Syria, and his Facebook page gives his full name as Ahmad Al Aliwi Issa.”
Al Aliwi Issa was allowed to legally buy a firearm and pass a background check just six days prior to his shooting.
How many times does this happen? Is it because FBI Director Wray is too busy chasing down Grandmas who wandered around the Capitol? pic.twitter.com/1x4hOOTANg

The #Boulder, Colo. mass shooting suspect who is accused of killing 10 people is an immigrant from Syria. His full name is Ahmad al-Aliwi al-Issa. His online posts show he was a deeply religious Muslim. pic.twitter.com/57vokI5jFz

So Syrian radical Muslim Ahmad Al-Issa killed 10 people at “Your One-Stop Shop for Kosher Groceries” and we’re supposed to all make believe that this wasn’t terror and run with the depressed guy angle. pic.twitter.com/MfupWMspu3

Al Aliwi Issa’s Facebook profile, before being removed, was full of posts mentioning “Islamaphobia” and he greatly criticized Trump’s work to stop terrorism. The FBI is still saying a motive is not known.
