  • Shooting at Naval Reserve Center & nearby recruiting facility in Chattanooga

    Apparently several wounded and the shooter is at large.

    Get ready for a lot of rumors before accurate, verified information is known.

    In the meantime, ing for the victims

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Yes, watching news conference on this now, but apparently we have 4 dead marines.

    The FBI is investigating this as domestic terrorism according to U.S. Attorney Bill Killian. (key is "investigating as" - not declared as)

      The shooter has been identified as 24 year old Muhammad (or Mohammad) Youssef Abdulazeez who was born in Kuwait and lived in Hixson, Tennessee. He was later killed in a shoot-out with local police although it is not certain whether he took his own life or if police fired the fatal shot.

      U.S. Attorney Bill Killian called the killings an "act of domestic terrorism" although Ed Reinhold, FBI special agent in charge of the investigation, said that they "have not determined whether it was an act of terrorism or whether it was a criminal act." And that they are still "looking at every possible avenue."

        In other words, it was an act of terrorism, but they're not prepared to say that officially yet.

          It's a good thing the area was a gun free zone. Can you imaging what all those shootings in schools, colleges, movie theaters and military barracks would have been like if guns were permitted?

            Well you can pretty much guarantee that ISIS will claim responsibility for it (even if they knew nothing about it) as they are actively encouraging this type of thing

              How unexpected:

              (CNN)Chattanooga shooter Mohammad Abdulazeez conducted Internet searches on martyrdom as recently as a day before his shooting rampage took the lives of five service members in Tennessee, according to a person briefed on the investigation.
              http://www.cnn.com/2015/07/21/us/ten...cts/index.html

              FBI agents have found evidence that Chattanooga shooter Mohammod Abdulazeez was following a radical American member of al Qaeda online in 2013, as well as pages of writing that showed the young man was suicidal and looking for a way to absolve what he considered were his sins, according to a representative of Abdulazeez's family.

              Video tapes of Anwar al-Awlaki, the high-profile American al Qaeda cleric and recruiter, have circulated on the internet and have been popular in jihadist circles long after al-Awlaki's death by American drone strike in September 2011.

              Monday U.S. officials told ABC News that in 2013 Abdulazeez did online research for militant Islamist "guidance" on committing violence. The Internet searches were discovered on electronic devices such as his smartphone analyzed over the weekend by the FBI Lab in Quantico, Virginia, several counter-terrorism officials confirmed to ABC News.
