A North Carolina teenager is in federal custody after telling an undercover FBI employee that he wanted to support the Islamic State group by carrying out attacks in the United States, officials said today.

Justin Nojan Sullivan, 19, of Morganton, planned to buy a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle at a gun show on June 20 so he could kill as many as 1,000 people and demonstrate his support of the Islamic State, according to the criminal complaint.

Mr. Sullivan “was planning assassinations and violent attacks in the United States,” said John P. Carlin, assistant attorney general for national security, according to the Associated Press.

Federal authorities began investigating Sullivan when his father called 911 in late April, telling emergency dispatchers that his son was destroying religious items in their house.

“I don’t know if it’s [the Islamic State] or what,” the complaint quotes Sullivan’s father telling dispatchers, “but he is destroying Buddhas and figurines and stuff.”

An undercover FBI employee made contact with Sullivan on June 6, when the teen described himself as a Muslim convert. Days later, he told the undercover agent that he wanted to kill 1,000 people using biological weapons, bullets coated with cyanide, and a gas bomb.
