    BOSTON —The FBI has arrested an Ohio man for allegedly plotting an Islamic State-inspired attack on the U.S. Capitol, where he hoped to set off a series of bombs aimed at lawmakers, whom he allegedly considered enemies, ABC News reported Wednesday.

    Christopher Lee Cornell, also known as Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah, was arrested earlier Wednesday on charges of attempting to kill a U.S. government official.

    Government documents say the FBI first noticed Cornell after he voiced support for violent "jihad" on a Twitter account.

    Further investigation revealed his intent to attack the U.S. Capitol, where he planned to detonate pipe bombs and open fire on any employees and officials after the bombs went off, according to government documents.

    The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security issued a bulletin to law enforcement agencies across the country, notifying them of the case.

    "The alleged activities of Cornell highlight the continued interest of U.S.-based violent extremists to support designated foreign terrorist organizations overseas, such as ISIL, by committing terrorist acts in the United States," the bulletin read. "Terrorist group members and supporters will almost certainly continue to use social media platforms to disseminate English language violent extremist messages."
