Matthew DeSarno, Special Agent in Charge of FBI Dallas, said that a note Rasheed left in the car of the Lyft driver he killed suggested hemay have been inspired by a foreign terrorist organization,” according to KTVT.

Rasheed reportedly killed the driver, 26-year-old Isabella Lewis, while she was on the job for Lyft.

While officers were responding to reports of a woman shot on Sunday in Garland, Rasheed made his way to the Plano station, raised a handgun, and then fired in the direction of a police employee and a visitor who was inside the headquarters.

The employee and visitor took shelter and two police officers responded, exchanging fire with the suspect.

No police officers or civilians besides the suspect were injured in the attack, polisie gesĂȘ.

It’s unclear at this time why Rasheed went to the police headquarters, but DeSarno said that the Dallas FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force has joined the investigation by the Plano and Garland Police Departments.

Rasheed may have been inspired by a foreign terrorist organization to commit these acts,” hy het gesĂȘ.

“[Ons] haven’t found any evidence he was directed by or in contact with foreign terrorist actors. He was inspired by the rhetoric. He wasn’t directed to do this.

DeSarno went on to say authorities do not believe that the suspect was assisted by others in the attacks.

Authorities said that Rasheed was also the subject of a counterterrorism investigation from 2010 aan 2013.

There’s no indication that Rasheed knew Lewis before he allegedly shot her. Authorities said she was hired to do a pickup at the location where she was shot.

She was either going there to pick up a client or going there to drop off a client,” Matt Pesta of the Garland Police Department said.

We’re still kind of unsure why she was at that location but it was a hired ride.

Lyft released a statement after the shooting saying they will assist law enforcement in any way needed.

We are heartbroken by this incident and our hearts are with the driver’s loved ones during this incredibly difficult time,” lui die verklaring.

Safety is fundamental to Lyft and we are ready to assist law enforcement.
