Shots were fired at a mosque as members celebrated the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, but no injuries or arrests were reported, authorities said today.
A member of the Islamic Society of Brevard County stepped outside of the mosque Friday night to use his cell phone when he heard several gun shots, the Melbourne police department said.
The member, who was not immediately identified, took cover behind a wall as several rounds struck the building's south side, police said. He then ran inside and told mosque members, who called police.
Authorities searched the surrounding area for suspects but found none. The FBI and Joint Terrorism Task Force were helping with the search, police spokeswoman Jill Frederiksen said today. [Link]
