A suspected jihadist who had been under 24-hour surveillance was shot and killed this morning following a confrontation with a Boston police officer and a FBI agent in a CVS parking lot in the Boston neighborhood of Roslindale.
The police officer and FBI agent approached 26-year old Usaama Rahim and Rahim pulled a military knife on them and forced them to retreat until they acted in self-defense. It is alleged that Rahim had been radicalized online by ISIS and had recently come to attention of the joint task force because of this activity.
The fact that Rahim would pull a weapon when approached by law enforcement indicates he was an imminent threat and a danger to the public. This city does not need another Boston Marathon attack.
