US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has identified one of the shooters in the attack outside a Garland, Texas venue hosting a contest for Prophet Mohammed cartoons, local media reported on Monday.
On Sunday evening, two men opened fire at a security guard at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas, which was hosting the "First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest." Police that arrived at the scene shot both suspects dead. The security guard was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The Muhammad Art Contest was organized to support free speech, offering a $10,000 prize for the best cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed. The event was in response to protests in January against a pro-Islam event hosted by the Curtis Culwell Center.
