HARRISBURG, Pa. - Authorities are still investigating the motives of an Egyptian man who shot at police in several locations in Pennsylvania's state capital, wounding one of them, before dying in a shootout.
Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico gave no new information Tuesday about Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty's motives. The 51-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen fired at a police officer Friday afternoon in front of the state Capitol and later at a state trooper, wounding her.
El-Mofty was killed in a confrontation with city and state police officers about a mile from the Capitol.
Marsico said agents know where El-Mofty purchased his guns. The FBI and Pennsylvania State Police are aiding the investigation.
Federal officials said El-Mofty was admitted to the U.S. from Egypt on a family-based immigrant visa.
Marsico asked anyone with information about El Mofty to call 800-CALL-FBI and press option 7.
