Man told FBI he wanted to shoot up church

The FBI said agents began watching Rayyan last May after learning he had made threats to others about committing acts of terror, including killing churchgoers, in the name of ISIS, the complaint said.

Last October, Detroit police stopped his vehicle for speeding and found a .22-caliber pistol and marijuana inside the vehicle, the complaint said. He was charged with the state offenses of carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a controlled substance.

As the FBI further monitored Rayyan after that arrest, he talked online to the FBI employee about shooting up the church, bragged about owning an AK-47 and said he wanted to kill the police officer who arrested him, the complaint said.
