A handwritten note titled “Phases of a Terrorist Attack” was found at the New Mexico terrorist compound where five individuals were arrested for allegedly teaching children how to commit school shootings, prosecutors said.

The news was reported by the Associated Press.

“The document, cited in a court filing Friday by state prosecutors, included vague instructions for ‘the one-time terrorist’ and mentioned an unnamed place called ‘the ideal attack site,'” according to the AP. However, it was not clear whether an attack was planned or if it was merely a desire of theirs.

The note was filed in an attempt by the prosecution to have Judge Sarah Backus’ decision to grant bail to the five adults overturned. (RELATED: New Mexico Jihadis Can Leave Jail Until Child Abuse Trial, Judge Rules)

Megan Mitsunaga, who represents Subhannah Wahhaj, said, “I think that Judge Backus already made it perfectly clear that she didn’t think the accusations were well founded and that they were not grounds to hold them preventively.” (RELATED: Remains Of Child Found At New Mexico ‘Jihadi’ Compound Are Confirmed To Be Missing Boy From Georgia)

Judge Backus released the five defendants, Siraj Wahhaj, Hujrah Wahhaj, Subhannah Wahhaj, Jany Leveille, and Lucas Morten, on a $20,000 “signature bond,” earlier this month, according to the Albuquerque Journal.

According to prosecutors, some of the children held at the compound said that Morton, Leveille and Subhannah Wahhaj discussed jihad and martyring themselves.
