A man accused of shooting and killing an armed transit security official in downtown Denver late Tuesday night was on the federal terrorism watch list and kicked out of a mosque in Texas.

Local law enforcement warned federal authorities, including the FBI, that Cummings was in Colorado and staying at a hotel, CBS4 reports. 

Cummings, 37, was arrested Tuesday night after authorities say he shot and killed Scott Von Lanken, a 56-year-old Regional Transportation District security guard.

About a month ago, local police alerted the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force in Colorado to Cummings’ presence.

It’s unclear whether federal authorities did anything with the information.
