A Muslim man has been charged with four murders in New Jersey and Washington. Ali Muhamad Brown, 29, claims he committed the murders to avenge the U.S. military operations in the Middle East. 


Brown said, “My mission is vengeance for the lives, millions of lives [that] are lost every day. Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan—all these places where innocent lives are being taken every single day…by America, by this government. So a life for a life.”


According to Christian News Network, Brown killed Leroy Henderson in Washington in April. Brown then committed two more murders in Washington, killing Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young on June 1st. Brown ended his killing spree in New Jersey with the murder of Brendan Tevlin on July 25. 


King County prosecutor Dan Satterberg said, “The defendant was on a bloody crusade, executing four innocent men…with the same murder weapon, over the course of approximately two months, and all under the common and single scheme of exacting ‘vengeance’ against the United States government for its foreign policies.”


Brown is being held on $5 million bail in Newark and could face the death penalty for his crimes.
