Authorities in Tennessee have identified the shooter at two separate military installations as Muhammed Youssef Abdulaeez. According to officers on the scene, Abdulaeez unleashed a barrage of gunfire at two military facilities Thursday in Chattanooga, Tennessee, killing at least four Marines and wounding a soldier and a police officer. The suspect was also killed.
Very little is known about the shooter right now or why he reportedly opened fire. It is believed that the 24 year-old Abdulaeez was born in Kuwait but had most recently lived in Hixson, Tennessee.
Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke said five people died in all, including the gunman. U.S. Attorney Bill Killian said officials were treating the attacks as an “act of domestic terrorism,” though FBI Special Agent in Charge Ed Reinhold said authorities were still investigating a motive.
