As Twitchy reported early this morning, police identified Elton Simpson of Arizona as one of the two shooters who carried out an attack on the Mohammad Art Exhibit and Contest held by Pamela Geller in Garland, Texas on Sunday. Simpson had previously been the subject of a terror investigation, according to a senior FBI official.

The second suspect has now been identified as Simpson’s roommate, Nadir Soofi.

According to NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth, police canceled a 3:30 p.m. press conference because they had no new information to release; however, the Council on American–Islamic Relations is expected to address the media at 5:30 p.m.
