Man shot by deputy in Fountain Hills accused of terrorism on behalf of ISIS

An 18-year-old man shot by a Maricopa County sheriff’s deputy in Fountain Hills earlier this month now is being charged as a terrorist who was acting on behalf of ISIS, according to a complaint filed by the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.

The complaint filed Tuesday alleges Ismail Hamed “intentionally or knowingly, did provide advice, assistance, direction or management” to the terrorist organization, which is listed under several formal names under which the organization is known, including the Islamic State of Iraq al-Sham. He is facing one count of terrorism under state law, a Class 2 felony,  for that allegation.

Hamed faces a second count of terrorism for his actions on Jan. 7, the night he was shot and wounded by a deputy in Fountain Hills outside the town’s government complex.

Hamed also is facing a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, which was filed prior to the terrorism charges were filed.
