Fabjan Alameti was an Albanian national who had recently moved from New York to Montana. Alameti allegedly told an FBI informant, who was posing online as an ISIS supporter, that he was considering traveling to Syria to join ISIS. He also allegedly told the informant that he had considered attacking a government building, gay club, Jewish temple, or military recruiting station -- but he believed it would be difficult to obtain the guns necessary for such an attack. In Monatana, while under FBI surveillance, Alameti purchased an air rifle and shopped for guns. He was kicked out his hotel for smoking marijuana and later taken to a hospital for alcohol poisoning. He told another FBI informant that he wanted to "shoot up" the hotel that had kicked him out. He was arrested after going to a shooting range and renting an assault rifle for $35.
