Louisiana Shootout Suspects Probed for Link to Domestic Terrorism

Some of the suspects in the fatal shootout with Louisiana deputies have ties to violent anarchists on the FBI’s domestic terrorism watch lists, the Associated Press reports.

The FBI is joining the investigation of Thursday’s shootout in Laplace, La., where two deputies were killed and two more wounded, police said.

At least some of the seven suspects were adherents to the “sovereign citizens” movement, which believes people are free from the responsibilities of a U.S. citizen, such as laying taxes, according to the AP.

The movement has been linked to threats against judges and law enforcement as well as fake currency.
