Australian police have detained a man suspected of plotting a mass shooting on New Year's Eve in Melbourne, Victoria state, police said Tuesday.
Victoria police deputy commissioner Shane Patton said the 20-year-old suspect was apprehended after a joint counter-terrorism operation in Werribee district of the city, according to local media.
Palton said the man, an Australian citizen with Somalian parents, is a high-risk person of interest.
"We have been monitoring him for a very lengthy period of time…What we will be alleging is that he was intending to use a firearm to shoot and kill as many people as he could," Patton said.
The man, who would face court, is believed to be acting alone.
"We are alleging that...he is a sympathizer of ISIL," Patton added.
