Early this morning (US Time) and mid afternoon across the pond, Greater Manchester Police released a statement informing the public they have a suspect custody. The suspect was taken in for the bombing of an Ariana Grande concert last night in Manchester which has left 22 dead and over 50 wounded. Many of which were children. The suspect is a 23 year old male. So far that is all we know.
With regards to last night’s incident at the Manchester arena, we can confirm we have arrested a 23-year-old man in South Manchester.

As Manchester works desperately trying to settle it's public and examine the extent of the damage of last night's attack, ISIS has already claimed responsibility and made comments about future targets. Paris was brought up, as were more attacks in the UK.
ISIS Propoganda Targets Las Vegas
Las Vegas was displayed in one video from the terrorist group calling for more lone wolf attacks. In the video several strip properties were shown. In an interview with a local Vegas News outlet their sheriff stated:
Channel 8: “What concerns do you have with ISIS here in Las Vegas?”
Sheriff Lombardo: “Well, I wouldn't put a title in particular to ISIS. I would say any terrorism group would consider Las Vegas a target.”
As EDC week is only right around the corner it is hard to hear of such threats in the city that the festival calls home. Vegas has always been a target of terrorism and the local FBI office has stated there is no reason to be on any higher alert with the publishing of the video in question.
