Michael Queen and Soufian Amri operated a video gaming center in Fairfax, Virginia. The pair were friends with Haris Qamar, who was caught up in an FBI sting in which he discussed with an informant ISIS’s need for photos of attack targets for a purported video. As part of the investigation of Qamar, FBI agents interviewed Queen and Amri, asking them if they knew anyone who was posting ISIS propaganda or wanted to join ISIS. Queen and Amri said they did not, in an attempt to protect Qamar. Queen then told Qamar and the FBI informant about the FBI's visit.
