FBI Looking Into N.J. Man Linked to Attack in Yemen

Thursday, 11 Mar 2010 11:55 AM

The FBI is investigating the case of an alleged al-Qaida member raised in New Jersey who's accused of trying to shoot his way out of a hospital in Yemen.

FBI spokesman Rich Wolf in Baltimore confirmed Thursday that the agency is looking into the case of 26-year-old Sharif Mobley of Buena (BYOO'-nah). He isn't commenting further.

WMGM-TV in Atlantic City quoted "federal sources" as saying Mobley is the man accused of shooting two guards over the weekend in a Yemeni hospital where he was being held prisoner. One of the guards died, and the suspect was caught after a chase.

Mobley's father says he's "no terrorist."

Public records show Mobley had addresses in recent years in Philadelphia and Newark, Del. The Baltimore FBI office covers Delaware.
