According to ABC News, the 37-year-old man from New Jersey allegedly parked his vehicle in front of Saks Fifth Avenue where he carried two gas cans and lighter fluid into the cathedral.
Miller added that the FBI’s joint terrorism task force is involved “because we don’t know exactly what his mind-set was, what his motive was.”
“But we do know that carrying two cans of gasoline and the equipment to light that, to a public area and a place like St. Patrick’s Cathedral is something that presents a danger to the public, and that’s why he’s in custody,” Miller said.
What’s his motive? The day after the Norte Dame fire and “what his motive was?”.
