FBI investigators have linked a bombing outside of a Casa Grande Social Security office to a shooting at a grain factory in Maricopa. The suspect is now charged with murder, attempted murder, and arson.

Within days, investigators tied Abdullatif Ali Aldosary to the shooting and the bombing. But right now they won't give us a motive or tell us why he would kill his former coworker then try and set off a bomb in a government building.

Abdullatif Aldosary was charged with 14 counts of attempted murder and one count of murder. Investigators say back in November, Aldosary walked into Arizona Grain and killed 26-year-old Orlando Requena, a father of three.

"Tragedy struck the city of Maricopa, tragedy struck the Requena family, tragedy struck the Arizona Grain Company," said Steve Stahl, Police Chief of Maricopa.

Requena was working inside the plant when Aldosary allegedly walked in and shot him.

"We lost a great man, a great father, my nephew, we just all want him to get what he deserves," said Alberta Requena, the victim's aunt.

"He took a good nephew of mine. He left three kids behind, a 3-year-old, a 5-year-old and a 9-month-old baby so that is really hard for us to raise these kids," said aunt Guadalupe Lopez.

Agents were tight-lipped when asked why Aldosary would target Requena and then three days later detonate a homemade bomb outside of that social security office.

"Only the suspect and the victim know the motive and that information will come out during the trial," said Stahl.

We do know Aldosary used to work with Requena at Arizona Grain. Investigators say they last had contact six months before the shooting.

"We just want justice, we just want justice, we want him to pay for what he did," said Lopez.

Aldosary also charged with 14 counts of attempted murder for each who was person who was inside the social security office when the bomb was detonated. Thankfully no one was hurt.

Agents also wouldn't tell us if they believe the bombing was terrorism-related.
