Vehicular Jihad in North Carolina? Ibrahim Alshabani ‘intentionally’ runs over, KILLS 79 year-old woman, tries to kill 5 more

This looks, smells and bleeds like vehicular jihad, but that remains unconfirmed, as expected. The driver, Sawan Alshabani, has a Saudi last name, but we are not allowed even to consider jihad as a possibility.

“This was random and isolated,” said Matthews Police Chief Clark Pennington. “There is no known connection between Alshabani and any of the victims.” (More here) Astonishingly (or should I say typically, in these cases), they did not arrest her. She was sent to the hospital for a medical evaluation for five days. She went on a killing spree last Monday and was only charged on Friday. When I inquired as to what the results of the medical evaluation are, I was given this response from the Matthews Police Department:

I do not have any information available for her medical evaluation

I also received this from the Matthews Police Department:

As for the motive, this case is still an open investigation, so I can’t provide much as far as specifics. However; we currently do not have any information or evidence to lead us to believe that this was a hate crime or an act of terror.

Police say the suspect, Sawan Ibrahim Alshabani (photo above) intentionally hit and killed 79-year-old Vira Hryhorniva Nahorna in the Aldi parking lot. Vira was a wife and mother of three; she was loading groceries into the trunk of her car. She and her husband were about to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary. The driver also tried to hit four other people.

“As a result of numerous statements and after evaluating the evidence, we can say with a level of certainty that the collision with Miss Nahorna was no accident,” he said. “In fact, the suspect in this case not only intentionally struck Miss Nahorna but attempted to strike at least four other people in the parking lot.”

Investigators have not revealed a motive in the case, but Pennington said investigators believe “this was a random, isolated incident, and there has been no ongoing threat to our community.” (more here)

Random car ramming? Who can it be now? Police obtained warrants also charging Alshabani with 2 counts each of attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon.

The driver’s last name is popular in Saudi Arabia, so it makes perfect sense that the police would not arrest her, but take her to the hospital for “medical evaluation” since Monday.

DRIVER ‘INTENTIONALLY’ TRIED TO HIT 5 PEOPLE AT STORE, KILLS 79 YEAR OLD, NC COPS SAY

Charlotte Observer, October 18, 2019

AUTHORITIES SAY THE KILLING OF A 79-YEAR-OLD PEDESTRIAN IN AN ALDI PARKING LOT IN MATTHEWS WAS INTENTIONAL, AND POLICE BELIEVE THE ACCUSED WOMAN TRIED TO RUN DOWN AT LEAST FOUR OTHER PEOPLE BEFORE FLEEING THE SCENE.

Investigators identified the suspect as 54-year-old Sawan Alshabani of Matthews, who turned herself into police an hour after hitting the other woman. Alshabani was under “medical evaluation” at a hospital for a week before being arrested on Oct. 21, Matthews Police Chief Clark Pennington said.

She is charged with multiple offenses including first-degree murder in the death of Vira Hryhorniva Nahorna, Pennington said.

Nahorna was buried Thursday in Matthews. She was a wife and mother of three who immigrated to the United States from Ombish, Ukraine, according to an obituary.

“As a result of numerous statements and after evaluating the evidence, we can say with a level of certainty that the collision with Miss Nahorna was no accident,” he said. “In fact, the suspect in this case not only intentionally struck Miss Nahorna but attempted to strike at least four other people in the parking lot.”

The incident happened around 10 a.m. in the parking lot of the Aldi grocery store at 555 W. John St., police said.

Officers found Nahorna in the parking lot. She was taken to Carolinas Medical Center, where she died later in the day.

“The driver of the vehicle initially left the scene and contacted Matthews Police Department Communications a short time later to meet with officers,” according to a police news release.

Investigators have not revealed a motive in the case, but Pennington said investigators believe “this was a random, isolated incident, and there has been no ongoing threat to our community.”…
