ISIS Claims Responsibility For Texas Shooting

GARLAND, MI (WLNS) – The militant group ISIS is claiming responsibility for the attempted attack on a Garland, Texas Community Center that ended with the two gunmen dead.

However, U.S. officials are not convinced.

The suspects were killed Sunday during a shoot-out with police.

Officials say Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi opened fire outside of the community center where people inside were having a cartoon contest to draw the Prophet Muhammad. ISIS call the gunmen soldiers of the group but the U.S. says they need more time to investigate the claims.

Both men were known to the FBI but one official told CBS News they were not considered high priority threats.
