Jeff Delinski, the deputy chief of Metro Transit Police, says the Department of Homeland Security informed him this weekend someone in Turkey is seeking a U.S. visa with the intent to "do harm" to an unspecified Metro station. But, Delinski says, that's all the information they gave him.
Delinski says Metro police won't be doing anything differently as a result of this DHS warning. He says it relied on uncorroborated, third-hand information and called it "not credible."
Delinski does say his unit is constantly on the lookout for terrorist threats, and he says Metro police officers have the ability to ramp up security very quickly if he receives more information about this threat.
