TAOS, N.M. — The father of a missing 4-year-old Georgia boy was training children at ato commit school shootings, prosecutors alleged in court documents Wednesday. The documents say was conducting weapons training with assault rifles at the compound near the Colorado border that was raided by authorities Friday.
Prosecutor Timothy Hasson filed the court documents while asking that Wahhaj be held without bail after he was arrested last week with four other adults facing child abuse charges. Authorities are also awaiting word on whetherwere those of Wahhaj’s son, who is severely disabled and went missing in December in Jonesboro, Georgia, near Atlanta.
“He poses a great danger to the children found on the property as well as a threat to the community as a whole due to the presence of firearms and his intent to use these firearms in a violent and illegal manner,” Hasson wrote.
Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe previously said adults at the compound were “considered extremist of the Muslim belief.” He did not elaborate, saying it was part of the investigation.
