The FBI is investigating the recent shooting of a Philadelphia police officer as a terrorist attack, FBI Director James Comey said on Wednesday, a Pennsylvania newspaper reported.

Comey's comments at a Federal Bureau of Investigation field office in Pittsburgh and reported by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, were confirmed to Reuters by an FBI spokesman.

FBI investigators were seeking to find out if suspected gunman Edward Archer, 30, was in touch with or inspired by anyone linked to Islamic State, the report said.

Philadelphia police have said Archer pledged allegiance to the militant group before allegedly opening fire on police officer Jesse Hartnett in his patrol car last Thursday night.
