NY: Police Arrest 4 Suspects for Plot to Attack Muslim Community

HeadlineJan 23, 2019

In the New York town of Greece, police arrested three men and one minor on suspicion of plotting an attack on a local Muslim community. The suspects were said to be in possession of multiple improvised explosive devices and firearms, and were charged with criminal possession of a weapon and conspiracy. The suspects were allegedly planning to attack the small community of Islamberg in upstate New York. Police discovered the plot after the unidentified 16-year-old suspect made a comment to a fellow student about a school shooter. The other suspects are 19-year-old Vincent Vetromile, 20-year-old Brian Colaneri and 18-year-old Andrew Crysel. Police say the attack was planned on the gaming chat platform Discord.
