BOSTON – Authorities are calling a news conference to provide an update into their investigation of a Boston terror plot that apparently involved planned beheadings and attacks on law enforcement.
The FBI, Boston police and the Suffolk County district attorney's office scheduled a briefing for 11 a.m. Monday on their joint investigation of 26-year-old Usaama Rahim.
Rahim was fatally shot June 2 after investigators said he refused to drop a military-style knife as they sought to question him about "terrorist-related information." Boston's Joint Terrorism Task Force says it had Rahim under 24-hour surveillance and feared an attack could be imminent.
The FBI says Rahim had ordered three large knives online. Rahim's nephew, David Wright, was arrested last week on a charge of conspiracy with intent to obstruct a federal investigation.
