The city of Pensacola, Florida, where four people died in a mass shooting on Friday, is now experiencing a cyberattack.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, a Saudi national who was training to be a pilot, allegedly shot three people at the Naval Air Station Pensacola before he was killed by police gunfire. As the New York Times reports, the FBI is investigation the incident as an act of terrorism, and authorities are continuing to interview anyone who was in contact with the suspected gunman, and are working to determine if he acted alone.
According to the Pensacola News Journal, Pensacola Mayor Grover Robinson said in a news conference on Monday that apparent cyberattacks had disabled all of the communication systems at City Hall. The sanitation department and Pensacola Energy have also been affected.
