NC teen Justin Nojan Sullivan planned to attack local bar, concert, then kill 1,000, FBI says

A Morganton teenager told an undercover FBI agent he planned to kill as many as 1,000 Americans in support of ISIL, according to documents released Monday.
Justin Nojan Sullivan, 19, was arrested Friday at his home, according to a release from the North Carolina U.S. Attorney’s Office.  (For more on investigation, charges, click here)
The criminal complaint against Sullivan says the agent made contact with Sullivan on June 6 and the teenager told him he became a Muslim after he “started thinking about death and stuff.”  He said he was angry about U.S. airstrikes and planned revenge that would force them to stop.
On June 7, Sullivan shared plans to acquire an assault rifle, the complaint said.  Sullivan said to the agent, “Just kill a few people so that I know you are truthful.  Just shoot them and leave.  Wear a mask.  Do it at night.”  He also said, “I’ll kill people this month … I want a car bomb,” the complaint said.
The agent spoke with Sullivan again on June 8, the complaint said, and told him they would use homemade silencers on their weapons and would kill 500 people.
