BELTON, Missouri – The FBI says one of their agents fatally shot a domestic terror suspect Tuesday in 100th block of Wilbur Parish Circle in Belton.
Officials say the suspect, 36-year-old Timothy Wilson, was angry with the government’s social distancing measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Wilson reportedly planned to bomb a hospital in response.
FBI investigators say Wilson was motivated by racial, religious and anti-government views.
Wilson “decided to accelerate his plan to use a vehicle-born improvised explosive device in an attempt to cause severe harm and mass casualties,” a press release said.

No other civilians or law officers were injured.
