    Genesee County Commissioner Mark Young, a friend of Neville, called him "an honorable man" whom he worked with at the county Sheriff's Department, according to MLive.

    Neville was a lieutenant with the airport's police department, said Young, who met with the victim's family and at the hospital today.

    "As expected, they are shook up. They are concerned," he told MLive.

    The FBI is the lead agency on the scene. State police troopers, along with ATF agents, are also at the airport investigating.

    The airport remains closed until further notice.

    DEVELOPING: The stabbing of a police officer at a Michigan airport Wednesday by a Canadian citizen who yelled "Allahu Akbar" and referenced people being killed in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan is being investigated by the FBI as an act of terrorism, officials said.

    FBI Special Agent in Charge David P. Gelios said at a news conference Amor Ftouhi, a 50-year-old Canadian citizen, entered Bishop International Airport in Flint around 9:45 a.m. and went to a restroom before dropping both of his bags, coming out with a knife and yelling "Allahu Akbar," the Arabic phrase for "God is great," before stabbing Officer Jeff Neville in the neck.

    Ftouhi said something similar to "you have killed people in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, and we are all going to die" as he was being arrested, accroding to Gelios. He also used a 12-inch knife with an 8-inch serrated blade, he added.

    The Canadian citizen was motivated to come to the airport and conduct this act of violence out of a "hated of the United States," according to Gelios. He first entered the U.S. at Lake Champlain on June 16, and then made his way to Flint, according to Gelios.
