On September 16, 2002 The Plain Dealer reported that "someone pumped seven bullets into the front of an unoccupied [Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio] mosque early yesterday - including one that pierced a plate-glass window and went into a prayer hall. The president of the Islamic congregation that worships there said it could have been worse. 'A few hours earlier we had probably 10 people praying there before sunrise, and hundreds of people back at 10 a.m. for Sunday school, so someone could have been hurt badly,' said Ihsfan Ul Haque, president of the Islam Society of Akron and Kent."
