36 Minnesota police officers on 'kill list' released by ISIS hackers

The FBI is investigating an online "kill list" released by hackers affiliated with ISIS.

- A group of hackers affiliated with ISIS have released a “kill list” that contains the names and personal information of more than three dozen Minnesota law enforcement officials, a spokesperson for the FBI confirmed Tuesday to Fox 9.

The list was published by the "Caliphate Cyber Army" and reportedly includes the full names, home addresses, email addresses and phone numbers of the officers, according to the news website Vocativ. The FBI said they are taking the list very seriously.

"Clearly, in law enforcement we don’t want this information out there at all possible. As far as whether it’s chilling, it is something that is not wanted," FBI spokesman Kyle Loven said.

According to the FBI, the supposed law enforcement targets are spread out all across Minnesota and the Dakotas. St. Paul Police Department confirmed four of their officers are on the list and they are taking necessary precautions to protect them.

Minneapolis Police Department along with Bloomington and Brooklyn Park said their officers names were not included on the list.
