NEW YORK (KCTV) -

Counterterrorism officials are investigating a potential terror threat for the day before the election, according to reports from CBS News.

CBS News sources say U.S. intelligence has alerted joint terrorism task forces that al-Qaeda could be planning attacks in three states for Monday.

It is believed New York, Texas and Virginia are all possible targets, though no specific locations are mentioned.

The sources stress the intelligence is still being assessed and its credibility hasn’t been confirmed, but counterterrorism officials were alerted to the threat out of abundance of caution.
