SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — Officials say they’ve stopped a man who was planning a possible Christmas terror attack in San Francisco.
We’ve learned the FBI has arrested a man by the name of Everitt Aaron Jameson from Modesto. They say he wanted to target Pier 39.
According to FBI documents, Jameson picked out that location because he “had been there before and knew it was a heavily crowded area.” He added that it would be easy to “funnel” people into an area where he could inflict casualties.
