CORPUS CHRISTI (AP) – A group that monitors online activity of jihadists says the suspect killed during an attack at a Texas naval air base voiced support for hardline clerics. The attack Thursday at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi wounded a sailor working security before other security officers killed the gunman. The gunman was identified on Friday by the FBI as 20-year-old Adam Salim Alsahli of Corpus Christi. He had been a business major at a local community college. Officials say a gunman tried to speed through a gate at the base and opened fire on security workers. The SITE Intelligence Group says social media accounts matching Alsahli’s profile featured jihadi figures.
