Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Edward Archer, a Muslim, ambushed and shot a cop in the arm. After he was apprehended, he said that he did it in the name of Islam and that he is loyal to ISIS. That made no difference to Democrat Mayor Jim Kenney who said the shooting had nothing to do with Islam. Then he said that, In America, Muslims are forced to defend themselves against hatred. -GEG

Officials said Edward Archer, the suspect in custody, was charged with attempted murder and held without bail Saturday in connection with the shooting of a Philadelphia police officer.

Archer, 30, of Yeadon is facing eight charges including attempted murder, aggravated assault and assault of a law enforcement officer in the shooting of Officer Jesse Hartnett.

According to police, Archer confessed to the crime, saying he did it “in the name of Islam.”

Commissioner Richard Ross provided the update during a news conference on Friday afternoon. He said there was no indication from Archer that he was involved in a conspiracy.

Archer allegedly told authorities he targeted an officer because police defend laws that are contrary to the Quran.

Archer pledged his allegiance to ISIS, officials said. Ross called the shooting “an attempted assassination of a police officer.”

Two law enforcement sources tell ABC News Archer took two recent trips to the Middle East – Saudi Arabia in 2011 for Hajj and Egypt in 2012. However, he was not on a terror watch list.

Ross went on to say Archer “stopped short of implicating anyone else in the attack,” adding Archer was “very evasive.”

Officials also said the gun used in the crime, a 9mm Glock 17, had been stolen from a police officer’s home in 2013, but it’s not clear how it ended up in Archer’s hand. That officer had been disciplined, Ross said.
