Police search for man who threatened worshippers at California mosque

Members of a Fremont mosque were shaken after a man entered the building Wednesday then threatened everyone inside.

Police said a man walked into the Ibrahim Khalillullah Islamic Center on Osgood Road Wednesday during afternoon prayer and said he had a gun and threatened to kill everyone inside. The people inside asked him to leave and he left peacefully, but he remains on the run.

The center’s leaders told KTVU they’ve never had anything like that happen before. “We are a little worried because of the situation that happened in Oregon,” said Fareed Wardak, a board of director’s member. “We don’t want the same thing to happen.”
