"We're looking at individuals who may have an eye towards repeating that same kind of violence that we saw last week," said Wray, in his first public remarks since pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol, CBS News reported.
More than 200 suspects have been identified by the FBI since the attack on Capitol Building on Jan 6, Wray said and added, "If you're out there, an FBI agent is coming to find you."
Details about suspects are increasingly coming to light.
Some of them have been identified as current or former police or military.
CBS News learnt from a law enforcement official that a police officer in Washington D.C. saw rioters use military-style hand signals to communicate inside the Capitol building during the assault. Sedition Task Force run by the D.C. U.S. Attorney's office's highest priority would be to identify people using military, small unit tactics.
