Boston Terror Suspects Plotted to Behead Police Officers, Source Says

(Fox News) - The man shot and killed Tuesday by Boston police was plotting with another suspect to behead a cop, a law enforcement said. The dead suspect, 26-year-old Usaama Rahim, was under surveillance by the Joint Terrorism Task Force, which is comprised of state, local and federal law enforcement agents, when he was shot at about 7 a.m. in the city's Roslindale neighborhood, when he brandished the 9-inch blade at police. Later Tuesday, authorities arrested another suspect, David Wright, in connection with the case, police said. Three different Joint Terrorism Task Force teams had been carrying out 24-hour surveillance on at least three different people in the Boston area, though it was unclear how long that had been going on. The plot may have been inspired by the terror group ISIS, who have repeatedly called on followers in the United States to attack law enforcement officials or military installations.
