US v. Wahid
Garland, TX

Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS)

[DAZ] Abdul Khabir Wahid of Phoenix was charged with one count of witness tampering and another count of making false statements to authorities in connection with the 2015 attack in Garland, Texas. Wahid committed the offenses during the FBI investigation of the May 3, 2015, ISIS-related attack on the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest in Garland, Texas. Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi drove from Arizona to Texas to conduct the attack, where they stopped their car near the contest location and began firing semiautomatic rifles at security personnel and law enforcement officers. One of their bullets struck and injured a security guard. Police officers shot and killed Simpson and Soofi during the firefight. Wahid did not travel to Texas and was not directly involved in the attack. In March 2020, Wahid was sentenced to 5 ½ years for witness tampering and lying to the FBI in the Garland shooting investigation.
