Attorney General Wrigley: Guardian report made against Barakat

(FARGO) -- At Friday morning's press conference, North Dakota Attorney General Drew Wrigley announced that the shooting suspect that killed Fargo police officer Jake Wollin, 37-year-old Mohamad Barakat, had a Guardian report filed on him at some time while he was in the United States.

According to Wrigley, the report was "made some while back."

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), "The eGuardian System (eGuardian) is a web-based platform where federal and state law enforcement entities can collaborate, coordinate, and deconflict investigative activity. eGuardian allows other federal agencies, state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement (FSLTT) entities, the Department of Defense, and Fusion Centers to document, share and track potential threats, suspicious activity, and cyber, counterterrorism, counterintelligence, or criminal activity with the FBI and with each other."

Wrigley says the report that was filed against Barakat "is not about a threat of violence,  a threat of this nature or anything along these lines."

The FBI says the system allows participating agencies to document, share and track incidents with participating agencies and itself. It also uses the system to share information from the Guardian System and the National THreat Operation Center's Threat Intake Processing System, according to documentation available from the FBI.
