“Investigators do not believe Nguyen was traveling with others, nor are they aware of a continuing threat to the public at this time, based on his alleged activities,” the FBI advisory stated. Nguyen is a U.S. citizen, according to the FBI. He was expected to appear in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana Friday afternoon.

Neither the FBI nor the U.S. Department of Justice could provide spokespeople to comment or provide further detail due to the ongoing federal government shutdown.
