With the recent attacks in New York City, New Jersey and Minnesota over the weekend, Detroit officials are letting the public know they are on an elevated state of readiness.

Right now, federal and local law enforcement officials are keeping tabs on an estimated 800 to 900 wannabe homegrown terrorists right here in Detroit.

This summer, Sebastian Gregerson was busted trying to buy grenades from undercover FBI agents and allegedly had plans to buy landmines, according to federal officials.

He had already legally purchased seven rifles, a tacticle shotgun, two handguns, 20 knives and body armor.
