Workplace Violence in Tennessee Kills 4 Marines

Two others, a soldier and a police officer, were wounded in the attack.

The killer is, you guessed it, a Muselmaniac:

Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez was not on the radar of the FBI. He was a naturalised U.S. citizen from Kuwait who graduated from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 2012 with a degree in electrical engineering.

“His motive is unclear”, says Heavy, but in light of the Islamic State tweet that went out at the time the shooting began, and the Islamic State calls to Muslims in the West to target military personnel, it seems clear enough.

Four Marines were killed this morning, when a heavily-armed gunman opened fire on two military centers in Chattanooga, Tennessee in what is being described as an ‘act of domestic terrorism’.

Officials have not yet officially named the now-deceased shooter, but law enforcement sources identified the suspect to CBS as 24-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, originally from Kuwait. He lived in Hixson, Tennessee, which is just a few miles across the river from Chattanooga.

From Breitbart:

Officials have said the shooter is dead and that the active shooting situation has ended. The shooter did not work at either of the facilities, according to the FBI. Today’s attack came with no warning, the FBI said.

At least they had enough sense to shoot him dead.

A message from commenter Don Laird:

I want you to look very carefully at the photographs of this Koranimals’ family.

HIJAB = SWASTIKA

HIJAB = DEATH

HIJAB = MURDER

Notice the beards. Notice the hijabs. These are the indicators of an orthodox adherence to Islam and the Koran. These are the hallmarks of terrorists and mass murders of the non-Muslim. These are indicators that these persons will do you, your family, your friends, your neighbors and all other non-Muslim members of your community grievous, lethal harm if given the chance and if not given that opportunity then they fully support, in any fashion, those who have that opportunity.

Understand very clearly that these family members knew exactly what their mass murdering Muslim brother and son was going to do.

Understand what the verminous Muslim and the poison and lunacy of its Koran and Islam bring to your community and your country. It brings death and misery. It brings madness and murder. It brings Islam.

From Jihad Watch:

Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez has been identified by CBS News as the gunman who fatally shot four Marines and wounded a police officer on Thursday in shootings at two military recruiting and training centers in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

At least two others were injured, including one in critical condition. The officer is in stable condition.

The shootings happened at separate military reserve centers on Lee Highway and Amnicola Highway.

Not much is known so far about Abdulazeez.

Here’s what you need to know:
1. A Witness Said the Gunman Fired From a Mustang Outside a Recruiting Center in a Shopping Mall
Chattanooga shooting

A woman who worked at a restaurant next to the recruiting office on Lee Highway told CNN she saw the shooting.

“I looked out of our window and I seen the guy in his car, a silver Mustang, drop top, a white guy and he had a high-powered rifle and was just firing shots into the Air Force, Navy and Marines office,” Gina Mule told CNN. “I don’t even know how many shots he fired, but it was a lot. … After he got done opening fire, he pulled out really quick.”
2. He Also Opened Fire at a Military Facility About 8 Miles Away

The two military facilities are about eight miles apart. Police say the shooter went to the Amnicola Highway location after opening fire on Lee Highway.

Police shut down the area around the second facility.
3. The Gunman Is From Arizona

Authorities said the gunman lives in the Chattanooga area, but CBS News reports that he is from Phoenix, Arizona.

Phoenix — like the Garland jihadis. How interesting.

4. His Motive Is Not Yet Known

Police have not yet released a motive for why the gunman targeted the two military facilities and military personnel….

Yes, it’s a total mystery.

More from Breitbart:

The Chattanooga Times Free Press is reporting that Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, the alleged killer of 4 Marines in Chattanooga, is from Kuwait. A man with that same name graduated from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 2012 with a degree in engineering.

It’s not clear whether that person is Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez or his father.

Abdulazeez, who was killed by police during the shootings, is from Hixson, Tennessee. A Youssuf Abdulazeez owns property there appraised at $206,100. It’s not clear whether that person is Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez or his father. According to the Times Free Press:

A single shooter, described by witnesses as a white man driving a silver Ford Mustang convertible, began firing shots at 10:45 am at the Lee Highway recruiting center, then led police on a chase to the Amnicola Highway location, where further shots were fired.

A U.S. official says the gunman in the shootings in Tennessee has been identified as 24-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, according to the Associated Press.

He was believed to have been born in Kuwait, and it was unclear whether he was a U.S. or Kuwaiti citizen. The official was speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing, sensitive investigation. It was not immediately clear whether the gunman’s first name was spelled Muhammad or Mohammad.

A man named Youssuf Abdulazeez attended UTC, spokesman Chuck Cantrell said, and graduated in 2012 with a degree in engineering.

Abdulazeez is from Hixson, Tennessee, which is just a few miles across the river from Chattanooga.

Police in Hixson kicked a reporter out of the neighborhood that contained a house apparently owned by Abdulazeez. The reporter saw a SWAT team and FBI agents staging at a nearby strip mall. The house, which Hamilton County records is owned by Youssuf S. Abdulazeez, is appraised at $206,100 by the Hamilton County Assessor of Property.

At least four Marines were killed and one police officer was shot in the attacks at Amnicola Highway. Two others, a soldier and a police officer, were wounded in the attack, according to the Associated Press.

Dennis Pedigo, a Chattanooga police officer, is in stable condition.

Erlanger’s Trauma Center received three shooting victims, a Chattanooga police officer and two members of the military. One of those patients was discharged from Erlanger this afternoon; the other two are still being treated.

Officials have said the shooter is dead and that the active shooting situation has ended. The shooter did not work at either of the facilities, according to the FBI. Today’s attack came with no warning, the FBI said.

A sign on the outside of the Lee Highway location had a “no guns allowed” sign posted. During the news conference, the FBI confirmed that guns were generally prohibited at federal facilities.

  1. “The shooter did not work at either of the facilities, according to the FBI. ”

    So no workplace violence.

    Compare with Nidal Malik Hasan who was convicted of fatally shooting 13 people and injuring more than 30 others in the Fort Hood mass shooting on November 5, 2009

    He was a United States Army psychiatrist and Medical Corps major who admitted to the shootings at his court-martial in August 2013.

    The decision by the Army not to charge Hasan with terrorism was controversial.

    Obama said it was not terror but workplace violence.
