An ATF informant told government agents that he had purchased an AK-47 and ammunition from Donald Ray Morgan, prompting a larger investigation. The FBI discovered that Morgan was using his social media accounts to spread ISIS propaganda. Morgan then traveled to Lebanon with his Lebanese wife and attempted at least once to travel to Syria to join ISIS but was stopped in Turkey. He was arrested at John F. Kennedy International Airport upon his return to the United States.
