Flint airport stabbing suspect told investigators he wanted to kill more officers

Suspect Amor Ftouhhi is scheduled to go to trial in January for the June attack of Flint Bishop Airport Lt. Jeff Neville.

We are learning new information about the man accused of stabbing Flint Bishop Police Lt. Jeff Neville.

According to court paperwork obtained by FOX66 and NBC25 Amor Ftouhi told investigators had planned to kill a police officer and then take the officer's gun to kill more officers.

The documents revealed Ftouhi subscribed to the ideology of Osama Bin Laden and that he celebrated the attacks of September 11th.

The court paperwork also revealed Ftouhi had entered the United States with the "sole purpose of killing armed U.S. government employees."

Ftouhi called himself a "soldier of Allah" and asserted that his mission was not over and that he would continue to kill police officers until he, himself was killed.

According to the court filing, Ftouhi said he would kill federal agents interviewing him if given the opportunity.

On July 5, a federal grand jury returned an indictment charging Ftouhi with violence at an international airport, and interfering with airport security personnel.

Ftouhi is set to go to trial for the attack in January of 2018.
