FBI agents searched a Sacramento apartment unit Wednesday, where a suspected ISIS member was living and was wanted in connection with the killing of an Iraqi police officer, according to court documents.

Omar Abdulsattar Ameen, 45, was arrested Wednesday and is being held without bail in Sacramento County Jail. He had settled in Sacramento as a purported refugee and attempted to gain legal status in the United States, according to the Department of Justice.
