ISIS Terror Threat Declared In Northern Virginia, Police Presence Increased in Shopping Malls and Transit Hubs
Authorities in northern Virginia warned about a possible ISIS terrorist plot in the area and have increased police presence at various public centers for the Halloween weekend.
Multiple law enforcement sources have reportedly received credible intelligence of a coming ISIS terrorist attack in the coming days and are increasing security at shopping malls, public gatherings and transport hubs.
“The Arlington County Police Department (ACPD) is aware of information circulating regarding a non-specific, unconfirmed threat to shopping centers,” the department said in a statement Saturday.
“There is no specific or identified threat to our region. As always, the public is encouraged to remain attentive as you go about your normal routine, particularly in areas where large crowds of people typically gather such as shopping centers, restaurant districts, religious services, and public transportation hubs to name a few.”
