BOSTON - The family of the terror suspect shot and killed by police earlier this week say they saw no signs of radicalization or anything to support reports Usaamah Rahim was a terrorist.
Rahim was being monitored by the Joint Joint Terrorism Task Force and had allegedly been planning to be-head police officers.
His aunt, who only identified herself as Karen, says Rahim's motivation for his actions were not inspired by Jihad, but were racially charged instead.
"With the current slaughter of black men going on right now across the nation, that's enough to make any and all black men feel threatened," Karen said.
A family attorney wants the public to keep an open mind until "all of the facts have been collected."
The family viewed surveillance video of the deadly shooting Thursday. It's expected to be released to the public sometime after Rahim's burial Friday.
