(KCRA) - FBI agents searched a Sacramento, California apartment unit Wednesday, where a suspected ISIS member was living and was wanted in connection with the killing of an Iraqi police officer, according to court documents.
Omar Abdulsattar Ameen, 45, was arrested Wednesday and is being held without bail in Sacramento County Jail. He had settled in Sacramento as a purported refugee and attempted to gain legal status in the United States, according to the Department of Justice.
According to court documents, investigators said Ameen lied on his refugee application to gain access to the Unites States.
An arrest warrant was issued for Ameen on May 16 by the Baghdad Federal Al-Karkh Appellate Court after he was charged with premeditated murder, court documents show.
ISIS entered the Rawah District of Al-Anbar Province in Iraq and seized control of the district on June 21, 2014, preventing citizens from entering or exiting the district.
The following day, a four-vehicle ISIS convoy carrying several people, including Ameen, stopped at the family home of an Iraqi police officer and opened fire, documents said.
Ameen fired his weapon at the officer while the victim was on the ground, hitting him in the chest, according to court records.
