Terrorist Who Attacked Travis AFB Identified as a “Vagabond” Muslim (VIDEO)

Travis AFB terror attack

The FBI has identified the man behind the terror attack on Travis Air Force Base as Hafiz Kazi, a 51-year-old legal permanent resident from India. 

He’s being described as a “nomad” and “vagabond” who moved often from place too place.

Although the FBI would not speculate as to any political or religious motivation by Kazi, his name indicates he is likely of Muslim upbringing. India is home to a significant but minority Muslim population.

Kazi reportedly loaded an SUV with what is thought to be propane tanks and tried to drive it through the main gates of Travis Air Force Base. He was killed in the incident by the flames. Authorities think he was trying to make the SUV a suicide bomb.

ABC7 reports on Kazi.

A man who was killed in a fiery crash at Travis AFB’s main gate has been identified as 51-year-old Hafiz Kazi.

Sources described Kazi as a “nomad” and a “vagabond,” who lived in many places.

Authorities extracted a video from his cell phone and are analyzing it to try and see if it could help point to a motive. Sources wouldn’t offer any details about the video.

The FBI is holding a press conference Friday at 3:30 p.m. and will be asking the public for help and any information about Kazi.

This earlier report of the attack describes the car explosion.

A driver is dead after their car crashed the main gate of Travis Air Force Base. Officials are treating it as a possible attempted attack. The FBI is now leading the investigation.

“The car basically blew up,” said witness Kamren Hernandez. ” It was nothing anymore.”

Hernandez couldn’t believe what he witnessed Wednesday night from his family’s restaurant just feet from the main gate at Travis Air Force Base — a black SUV exploding seconds after breaching security gates.

Henandez’ father, Lamar, saw it too. “It kept exploding — boom boom. Kept on going.”

Here is video from NBC News of the FBI press conference.
