A couple accused of training children to carry out mass shootings at an “extremist Muslim” compound in the New Mexico desert singled out an Atlanta hospital as one target before police arrested them, according to court documents filed Friday.
Prosecutors in Taos County, citing interviews with the 11 children found at the compound earlier this month, claimed in the filing that Jany Leveille wanted to “confront ‘corrupt’ institutions or individuals … and reveal the ‘truth’ to these corrupt institutions or individuals,” Fox News reports
A 10-page handwritten document entitled “Phases of a Terrorist Attack” was recovered from the Islamic compound according to investigators, it did not mention specific targets. However when the 11 children were questioned some of the children discussed shooting schools and hospitals.
The children told investigators that Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and his partner, Lany Leveille, intended to “confront corrupt institutions or individuals,” WSBTV Local News 2 reported.
Included in the documents are a 10-page hand-written document called “Phases of a Terrorist Attack”.
Prosecutors say Leveille “expressed his displeasure with Grady Hospital due to the treatment her mother received there.”
The handwritten document included talk of confronting and attacking “corrupt” institutions, including Atlanta’s Grady Memorial Hospital.
Authorities also said Leveille and her partner, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, “would laugh and joke about dying in Jihad.”
An underground stash of weapons and ammunition was also disclosed.
The handwritten document contained “instructions for ‘The one-time terrorist,’ instructions on the use of a ‘choke point,’ a location ‘called the ideal attack site,’ the ‘ability to defend the safe haven,’ the ‘ability to escape-perimeter rings,’ and ‘sniper position detection procedure,'” according to the court filing.
Authorities have said the property included a makeshift shooting range. Police said they recovered an AR-15 rifle, loaded 30-round magazines, four loaded pistols and many rounds of ammunition.
The children told investigators in recent interviews that a tunnel on the property was to be used as an “escape route” if police arrived as Siraj Wahhaj and Morten “stayed behind and battled with police,” according to Friday’s court filing.
“The guns located at the exit of the tunnel were stored there … so that as the group exited the tunnel, the group could arm themselves with weapons and ammunition,” the document said. According to Houston 2 News.
The authorities in New Mexico had told NBC News that there were still a lot of questions that needed answered and those answers were only going to come as they investigated the Islamic compound. Shortly afterwards, the Feds had the compound bulldozed. RWT News Report
