Central Floridians on ISIS hit list

FBI investigating threat


ORLANDO, Fla. – The FBI is investigating a hit list posted by the online terror group ISIS that includes about 100 members of the military, two of whom are from Central Florida.

The list contains the names, home addresses and photographs of military personnel, including one from Merritt Island and another from Palm Bay.

Federal authorities believe the information was taken from publicly available sources, such as news articles and telephone directories.

"We take all threats to U.S. military members seriously and will continue to work in concert with our federal, state and local partners to address these online posts," the FBI said in a statement.
