The knife-wielding terrorist who killed an American tourist and three others outside the U.K. Parliament was British-born and previously investigated for “violent extremism,” officials said Thursday.

Police identified the suspect as Khalid Masood, 52, on Thursday. Authorities said Masood was born in Kent and detectives believe he was most recently living in the West Midlands. He was known by a number of aliases, police said.

Masood was known to security services as “a peripheral figure” and “was not part of the current intelligence picture,” Prime Minister Theresa May told the House of Commons on Thursday.
