Man Arrested After Threatening to Shoot Security Guards Inside Hospital

Najibullah Noory, 39, of Union City, was arrested on suspicion of making terrorist threats.

A Union City man was arrested Tuesday night after threatening to shoot security guards inside of Washington Hospital, police said.

According to the Fremont Police Department, Najibullah Noory, 39, went to visit a family member at the hospital at around 6:50 p.m.

After being told visiting hours had ended, Noory got upset. Security guards approached Noory, who then threatened to shoot them with a handgun, police said.

Officers responded to the first floor of the hospital where they had to search Noory at gunpoint. However, no weapons were found on Noory nor in his vehicle.

Noory was eventually arrested on suspicion of making terrorist threats.

Terroist threats? I'd like to understand the difference between a threat and a 'terrorist' threat. Especially since he had no weapon on him or in his car.

Because he has a muslim jihadist sounding name.... those racist cops.

Terrorism: criminal act intended or calculated to provoke a state of terror. I'm pretty sure claims like "I'll shoot you all bastards in hospital/cinema/school/IRS office/supermarket" can be marked as such.

No, because he's idiot who said he's going to start a hospital shooting and it has nothing to do with his Afghani name. James Holmes or Cho Seung Hui are terrorists even their names sound differently from "Mohammad" or "Abdullah"
