Nearly a Year Later, FBI Still Uncertain What Motivated Sophisticated Sniper Attack on Power Substation

The FBI is still uncertain what motivated a sophisticated sniper attack at a Silicon Valley power substation last year.

The New York Times reports that the attack exposed the vulnerability of electrical grids and led to concerns that terrorists were responsible.

But the FBI has found no strong evidence to link the attack with terrorists.

“The F.B.I. at this time does not believe it is related to terrorism, based on the initial assessment of the investigation,” Peter Lee, an agency spokesman in San Francisco, said.

On April 16, communication cables were methodically cut near a Pacific Gas & Electric substation in San Jose, and more than 100 rifle bullets disabled most of the station’s transformers.
