An Arkansas man was arrested Monday in connection with a shooting at a Little Rock military recruiting center that killed one soldier and wounded another, authorities said.

Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad — a 24-year-old Little Rock resident formerly known as Carlos Bledsoe — faces a first-degree murder charge and 15 counts of engaging in a terrorist act, Little Rock Police Chief Stuart Thomas said. The terrorist counts stem from the shots fired at an occupied building.

The soldier who was killed was identified as Pvt. William Long, 24, of Conway, and the wounded soldier is Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula, 18, of Jacksonville, Thomas said.

Ezeagwula is in stable condition and expected to recover, the police chief said.

Although military officials initially believed that the shooting was a random act, Thomas said police think the shooter acted alone “with the specific purpose of targeting military personnel.”

“I’m relieved there’s a suspect in custody,” said Capt. Matthew Feehan, commander of the center.

Feehan said seven other recruiters were in the building, but nobody else was injured.

Thomas said police recovered three guns from Muhammad’s black Ford SUV: an SKS semi-automatic rifle, a .22-caliber rifle and a pistol.

The victims were just out of basic training and had not been deployed, said Lt. Col. Thomas F. Artis, commander of the Oklahoma recruiting battalion that oversees the Little Rock recruiting center.

The soldiers were part of a recruiting program called “hometown recruiting assistance,” Artis said. Under the program, recruiters have the soldiers tell their stories to potential recruits. It’s a volunteer position taken while soldiers are visiting or based back in their home region, Artis said.

The FBI has opened an investigation into the incident, said Steven Frazier, spokesman for the agency’s Little Rock office. “Based on what we find, we will determine whether there is any federal jurisdiction to prosecute,” he said.

  1. This is a terrorist attack. He returned from yemen and attacked the 2 military men because he is muslim. Right now across the United States of America muslims are very happy to hear of how religious is and are pleased of the killing.

    It is time this cult called islam be recognized as just that a cult.

  2. Well, theres another muslim hater <.<
    Islam ? A cult ?
    You must be one ignorant person to call a religion a 'cult'.
    Ok, what these 2 'individuals' did was disgusting yet horrific. These 2 'individuals' again are putting other muslims in danger because of the 'non – muslims' who 'now' think all muslims do this! This is why muslims get hated on, because of sick & twisted individuals like them.
    Secondly do you even know how many muslims there are in the world and you read one article about 'muslim terrorists', and you suddenly jump to an absurd conclusion that islam is a cult ? What ?
    Who are 'you' to judge the religion ? How dare you! Infact why didnt you curse the 2 sick murderes ? THIS is why 'muslims' are seen as bad. Because of ignorant 'individuals such as yourself! All muslims are NOT like this. Us muslims get embarrassed and ashamed of what our muslim brothers are doing in the world.
    So Forget the rasicm and speak with knowlendge next time..
