• Muslim Murders 4 Marines at a Tennessee Navy Recruiting Center

    Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke has confirmed that five people have died at The Navy Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee, including the gunman who has been identified as 24-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez.

    Among the decease include four Marines, separate law enforcement sources confirmed with CBS News.

    “He pulled up, got out of his car, lifted up a big gun, and unloaded,” one eyewitness to the shooting said. “There was one shot and then there were endless shots.”

    U.S. officials are investigating whether the attack was inspired by the Islamic State or another Jihadist group, Fox News is reporting.

    Here are more details from the Associated Press: 

    U.S. Attorney Bill Killian said officials were treating the attacks as an act of “domestic terrorism,” though FBI agent Ed Reinhold said authorities were still investigating a motive.

    A U.S. official speaking on condition of anonymity identified the gunman as 24-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez of Hixton, Tennessee, and said he was believed to have been born in Kuwait, though it was unclear whether he was a U.S. or Kuwaiti citizen.

    The shooter jumped out of this car before unleashing his rampage Thursday:

    One police officer was also shot in the ankle and was taken to a hospital where he has been treated and released. Two other individuals were also shot, but there injuries were not life-threatening.

    According to a tweet posted by the Times Free Press, below is a picture of the Tennessee Marine shooter:
